There is generally a correlation between the level of effort and the level of result.
For example, when I see someone who has lost a large amount of weight (sans an operation) I see a BIG effort, one that involves dramatically changing the way one eats and exercises, limiting alcohol, drinking more water, getting more sleep, etc., hence the big result. It’s a lot of little steps in between that equal the huge return on investment. The little steps represent the discipline and doggedness it takes to succeed.
See how that works? We put in the work and we reap the rewards from our effort. A lot of it is within our control. We put forth a mediocre effort and we get back a mediocre return.
There are entrepreneurs who have failed countless times but reinvent their ideas until they reach success. Failure is also a little step. They learn from what didn’t work and adjust accordingly.
Generally speaking, if you want bigger results in life, you need to make bigger efforts. It’s as simple as that, and as hard as that, at the same time.
But remember, you hold the key.
