Don’t Wish For It, Work For It

A good little phrase to keep those gremlins at bay is “Don’t wish for it, work for it”. I have ranted blogged before about the sense of entitlement which some people have, and it annoys me greatly. I have worked hard throughout school, university and in all of the jobs which I have had. My career choice is the hardest I have ever had to work, and although I finish every day tired and mentally drained, I know that when I eventually complete my training, it will be all the more sweet.

The same applies to exercise and fitness. I am unfit, I know this, it is not a surprise to me. However, I am working hard to improve this, and every time I see those scales drop even a little, or I run a little further, I get such a feeling of pride (a sin, I know!).

If I had these things handed to me on a plate, I would get nowhere near the same warm fuzzy feeling that I get now. I know I have earned my achievements, and I don’t care if anyone else knows, or even cares for that matter, the feeling to me is enough.

Don’t wish for it, work for it.

  1. I could not agree more. I have always succeeded through hard work and perseverance and I still maintain it will get me through anything! It is nice to see a similar attitude.
