Making the Effort

There are so many people that talk a good game, but it is easier to talk the talk, than to walk the walk. When will we learn that nothing will come to us for free unless we make an effort to go out and get it? Even the Bible says, "faith without works is dead." In other words, we can dream and have all the hope and faith in the world, but without and effort and a desire to make something happen, we will never accomplish our goals.

There is no such thing as luck. Good things happen to dedicated people who go out and make a genuine effort. They say, "the harder you try the luckier you get." Why? Because you make the luck for yourself. Their dreams, goals, and wishes manifest themselves through their effort to succeed by all means. It's called positive Karma. You can be the best at whatever you do, but if you don't apply the effort to reach the highest level, then our personal talents mean nothing. Too often people show no effort, or quit at the first sign of struggle...trouble...and discomfort. They are not willing to go all out. That extra mile that will take them to where they want to be.

In the dictionary it says: the word "effort" means "conscious exertion of physical or mental power". To achieve a particular purpose or result, we must apply all our effort. Our dreams are only the beginning. If you don't apply any effort, your dreams will never become realities. Remember this: you get an A for effort. Anything less is considered a failure. Succeed. Accept nothing less!
