When you seek to get something for nothing, what you usually end up with is nothing worth having. It is by investing yourself in life that you're able to reap life's best rewards.
In the effort, in the commitment, in the price you pay is the value. Don't cheat yourself out of that value.
Be willing to pay the price, and you become able to enjoy the reward. Be willing to invest your time, effort and resources, and you'll be capable of creating real, meaningful value.
You get what you pay for, so it makes sense to give your best in every situation. Pay the price, with authentic gratitude in your heart, and enjoy life's greatest rewards.
