"If you want results, you need to work hard?" At face value, the instruction given by well meaning parents, teachers and coaches is accurate and motivational and seems appropriate for such things as a T-shirt or poster with a cute kitten hanging from a ball of yarn. However, working hard doesn't always equate to the results you desire. If your goal or result is to be LAZY, then you actually need to avoid working hard. Also, if your goal is to be COMFORTABLE, then hard work usually brings a fair amount of discomfort, therefore if you want to be comfortable, hard work should be avoided at all costs. If HAPPINESS is your goal, then hard work typically doesn't make you laugh. Want to FEEL GOOD or FEEL BETTER or FEEL RIGHT? Working hard tends to bring soreness, if not worse, and hard work often feels anything but "right". However, if and only if our goal in life is to OBTAIN SOMETHING CLOSE TO OUR FULL POTENTIAL, then HARD WORK, and SACRIFICE, and being UNCOMFORTABLE and even PAIN are indeed appropriate and they should be the priority. The ingredients need to match what we desire to be the outcome. If you desire a fruit salad, I suggest using fruit to make it. Baking a chocolate cake, you may want to avoid using salmon. And if you want to be a champion, I suggest using a champion mindset and champion behavior and champion priorities.
