Burdens vs Benefits : Considerations
Great morning Champs,
It’s a super amazing day to be alive! Have you ever had to do something that would cost you but you did it anyway?? I bet you have….. or let go of one thing to get another?????….hmnmm let me put it in another way; have you ever given up on a vision or an idea just because you were discouraged by what it would cost you?? Yes?? No??
Today,I am writing a piece I call Burdens vs Benefits : Considerations. An athlete wakes up every morning,jumps out of bed and hits the tracks even before dawn in the cold……he undergoes series of warm up exercises and stretches before getting into the grind of stamina training. He constantly pushes against his limitations so that he can break personal barriers and get better. He hurts..every muscle aching..and his diet?? You don’t want to go there….he deliberately chooses what he eats and can not dare to indulge or over indulge himself in what the next person can….our athlete has to even pay attention to his sleeping habits…to his emotional state. As someone who has regular workout sessions, I can tell you that this is not very convenient especially on those mornings when you just want to roll over and just lay in the comfort of your cost bed..lol.. so why go through all these strain and “torture”???? Why these burdens??? Champs, the answer lies in the desire to win the race, to break the tournament record, to win the gold medal….to be the Champion!
In this scenario the benefits outweigh the burdens…Because of the benefit….the burden is bearable! Because of the benefit…you have to keep on keeping on. Always go for it whenever the benefits surpass the burdens. The benefit could be in any form..emotional, peace of mind,profit, financial gain, family stability…whatever it is, the benefits ought to outweigh the burdens.
Is there anybody out there who is about to give up on a dream,vision or desire???? Is there anybody who has looked at the discomfort of today and is blind to laurels of tomorrow???? Is there anybody who is about to let go of his or her diamond just because it is covered in mud at the moment?????! Well I have a word for this Thursday morning……take a second and a third look at what you are up to and weigh the Burdens vs the benefits……..let that scale determine all that you would ever do and trust me you would, by doing this and all that attends to it,be walking #thepathwayofchampions
Have a truly blessed day
