As a kid, my family used to frequent a specific restaurant for breakfast, and I always ordered the "Everything Omelet" (would you expect anything else?). "Omelets are not made without breaking eggs" François de Charette. An idiom that is often utilized to emphasize that most things worth having come at a cost. A similar quote "Laws are like sausage, it's better not to see them made" Otto Von Bismarck. In other words, we like to see the results but don't really want to see the process that renders those results. And finally, "You can't have your cake and eat it too" Proverb (not from Proverbs in the Bible). This particular phrase I don't agree with. I believe that you can, indeed, have both your cake and also eat a cake ... merely bake two cakes and eat one and save the other. Mic Drop! Sure it takes more time and ingredients but two cakes are better than one ... always. Besides food, what do these three common phrases have in common? Success is not easy, it comes with sacrifice and struggle, and it requires a lot more effort and intention than many people are willing to give. And that is why success "tastes" so good when we achieve it.
