Patience is a skill. We want results today and dreams tomorrow.
It would be nice to go straight to the good stuff. I mean a promotion? hell yes. Drop pounds in 1 day? stellar. My article got published in the New York Times? winning.
skipping a workout and going straight to the sauna
rushing through dinner to get to dessert
going to yoga and going straight to shavasana
Starting a marathon and crossing the finish line 2 minutes later
However, would ANY of these events be as enjoyable without the journey? without learning? without putting the hard work in first?
To earn something brings value.
