Do you believe nothing worth having comes easy?

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. – Vince Lombardi

We’ve come to find that it’s true.

Everyone wants some form of success and fulfillment in their lives whether it be relationships, money, or just a solid sense of self.  It can and will come to you if you believe, but if it’s truly worth it, it may not come easy.  Luck and circumstance are wonderful, but rarely to thank for success.

With the big surge in popularity of the Law of Attraction, some people are assuming they can visualize whatever they want without action and it will just happen. However, action is a must in the “attr-action”. Our energy is, in fact, a powerful driving force, but we drive that force. Challenges and mistakes are what create the opportunities to put positive momentum, growth and success into place.

Struggle brings progress whether you succeed or fail.  You either advance or learn from it. If you learn from it, remember that mistakes are proof that you are trying. You’re working on growth. Life is not stagnant and does not wait, so doing something now, even if it seems you’re in the face of an unbeatable adversary, is still better than nothing. If it’s worth it, it’s not easy.

If you need the motivation to get started or to keep going, here are our favorite motivational quotes.
