week 2

Failure is a matter of
conceit. People don’t work hard
because, in their conceit, they
imagine they’ll succeed without
ever making an effort. Most
people believe that they’ll wake
up some day and find themselves
rich. Actually, they’ve got it half
right because eventually they do
wake up.
-Thomas A. Edison

  1. I’ve had to deal with my own internal conceit. I realized that one of the things that was holding me back in life was an underlying belief that I felt entitled to NOT have to struggle to achieved something I want. I assumed that if something was hard to achieve then I must be going down the wrong path or doing something wrong. Where this belief came from, I have no idea but I’ve since learned that you can’t achieve anything worthwhile without dedication, persistent effort and sacrifice. Anything worthwhile requires hard work.

    1. Very true! With anything-from gardening to relationships, you have to put in work to get results. The sayings that “nothing good comes easy” and “if it were easy, everyone would be doing it” hold true as well.

      Thanks for tuning in + sharing your honest testimony.


      1. Haha nah for real that’s me being an asshole. i only half mean it. I see the words “not working, effort, & succeed” and that’s the first thing that comes to mind. That being said it can be applied to all aspects of life, so in those regards I do see the importance of the words.
