For most people, life will be a series of different situations and opportunities. Our locations, relationships, jobs, and skills can change over time – this is just the way of life. And one of the best feelings in life is when we’ve worked hard and accomplished something great.
When we have to put effort into something we want to gain or keep around, it becomes more and more special and worthwhile to us over time. On the opposite end, if a goal is easy to reach, it’s not one we focus too much energy on and it doesn’t have as high of a value to us.
This is why the best parts of our lives are things that weren’t handed over to us – we worked hard and eventually found success, so these things are a reminder of how determined and resilient we are. We shouldn’t forget to keep working hard for the things that are important.
