A Great Sin

As I look back on my life, I realize that one of the worst sins that a person could make, is going through his/her life by taking "shortcuts". If you make a habit out of this, at best it will prevent you from reaching your potential, at worst it will destroy you.

There is NO shortcuts in life. Every single shortcut you take will eventually come back to hunt you.

Every single one of them.

All real success, real happiness in life can only be achieved through real, authentic, hard work. That is the ONLY way.

Forget about sexy slogans like "Work smarter, not harder"; it's CRAP.

Unless you have the discipline and character to work harder, working smarter has no value to you.

Innovation, creativity, ingenuity all are results of hard work and dedication; not substitutes.

It matters not how smart you, how experienced you are, or how lucky you are. Don't take the shortcuts; they will ruin your life.

This is one sin you do not want to commit.

Trust me on this one. I know.
