Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Earn it

leave a comment »

How boring it would be if you were born with everything provided? If money were always there for you to buy anything you need, what would be the fun in that? What would be the point of having a nice body if you could just order it over the internet? Would you be happy if your boss handed you a great position you didn’t deserve? Imagine being born with all the knowledge in the world. Would you really enjoy that?

It’s like starting a video game with your character having maxed out stats and weapons. You would breeze through the game and that would be no fun. It’s easy mode. Better to start out weak and fight your way to gain upgrades. You feel the sense of accomplishment by leveling up.

It’s not what your achieve in life that matters, it’s what you overcome. It’s a cliche but it’s true.

Don’t be afraid to start from nothing, be a wide-eyed noob and work for something you want. Work hard to get money to be able to afford things you need. Work out in the gym diligently to slowly build the physique you want. Do good work to be promoted fairly. Learn things to become more knowledgeable. It would feel empty to obtain something you didn’t earn.

Enjoy the journey and go earn the life you want.
