The One Thing You Need to Make a Change

Everywhere you look, there are quick fixes.

There are headlines that claim to save you from your money problems in an instant, help you lose weight without changing a thing, and make your career take off overnight.

Then there are countless articles and books with endless steps teaching you how to make these changes happen.

We would all love a magic pill to fix our problems without having to actually do anything about them. But I can tell you in three words what these books and articles drag out for thousands of pages.

If you want to change your life, there’s only one thing you have to do: Do the work.

Put on your tennis shoes, show up at the gym, and do the work. Stop spending money you don’t have, start saving more of the money you do have, and do the work.

That’s it.

Everyone who wants to lose weight knows it comes from eating healthier and exercising. Anyone who wants to get out of debt knows they have to stop using their credit cards and spend less in order to pay them off.

We have no lack of information, but we have a severe lack of discipline.

We search for quick fixes and exert our efforts in all of the wrong places. We want the results, but then we spend all of our energy trying to bypass the very thing that produces results: hard work.

The people who actually make these changes get it. They know it won’t happen overnight and they know it’s going to be really, really hard.

But they also know that doing the work is the only thing that will truly work.
