Daily Prompt: Pains and Gains
Do you agree with Jane Fonda’s favorite exercise motto, “no pain, no gain?” Is it impossible to attain greatness without considerable hardship?
Some are born with a silver spoon but most get ahead through other means. There is a lot of conflicting advice out there. Which path do you choose? Some of your choices are as different as night and day, while some are separated only by subtle nuance.
Daily Post likes Ms. Fonda’s credo, “No Pain, No Gain”
Is there a reason that strugglingartist is one word?
The Bible tells us that if we are meek we will inherit the earth
Gandhi, Mother Theresa
Old wives and philosophers advise patience and tell us that “good things come to those who wait”
True enough if you want good things. What if you want to conquer? Is there always a difference?
Mark Twain, in all his wisdom, reminded us that we need to get started if we want to get ahead
Get off your rusty-dusty?
“There are two ways to get ahead in this world,” advise many captains of industry, “by your own industriousness and through the stupidity of others”
Synonymous perhaps, with, “work smart, work hard, and take advantage of opportunities when they are presented”
Maybe it’s just ‘luck’
Perhaps ‘fate’ and preordination are the keys
Do the scouts have it right with their motto, “Be Prepared”
Definitely wisdom with this one. Whether when striving to get ahead or merely to survive
I know only, that this is not a multiple choice quiz and that you don’t get a lot of chances to get it right.
First, define what ‘success’ means for you.
Remember that what works for one may not work for another.
Choose wisely children and be kind.
