No pain, no gain?
March 12, 2019 By Elsie Dennis
I took this snapshot on my way from the gym where I’d spent an hour listening to my instructor shout “no pain, no gain, repeatedly as he did his best to wear us out.
No pain, no gain. I’m not sure I agree. After all, I was sweating because of the weight I had gained and I can assure you the weight gain came from pleasurable indulgence. The issue here for me is the type of pain or gain we are talking about.
Sacrifice is pain and if applied in the right direction it leads to gain in the right direction.
But sweat and suffering does not automatically lead to the right kind of gain.
Today, redefine your pain. Sweat for the right reasons. Be clear about what your want to gain and the pain you are prepared to handle. Clarity always brings success.
