This week I was reminded of the importance of choosing the right path and not the path of least resistance. Although it may be tempting in the moment, the results of choosing the easy path are typically short lived. By putting in the effort, by working for long term results, the situation may be more difficult in the moment but the yields are much more positive and rewarding.
When we plant a seed, we can’t expect the plant to bloom and flower immediately. When we plant our garden, tend to the soil, stay consistent with our care, ultimately we are rewarded with growth. There may be stormy weather along the way, but the rain or wind actually create greater strength.
Winston Churchill once said, “Victory will never be found by taking the path of least resistance.” Stick to it and persist. It’s worth the effort!
