I can still hear the words of my Dad echo in my ears: “The greatest achievements in life are never easy. And they’re never accomplished alone.” And while I’ve experienced this principle over and over in all aspects of life—from school to sports to work—I often want success to be easier. Sometimes I just wish I could get the results without the sacrifice and suffering along the way.
Vince Lombardi is famous for saying, “The harder you work the harder it is to surrender.” And personally, in many ways, I’ve found that to be true, partly because we’re willing to work hardest for the things that matter most. That makes giving up, giving in or quitting out of the question, at least not without a fight.
