Effort creates value, and is an essential part of life. Though it is not always easy, and sometimes fails to produce the desired results, it is always worth the trouble.
Though effort can often feel like a burden, that's mostly because you have decided for it to feel that way. The great thing is, you can always choose to feel however you wish to feel about the effort you're making.
As long as you're making the effort anyway, you might as well embrace it and get the very most from it. There's a reason why you're making the effort, so your best strategy is to treat that effort as an opportunity rather than as a burden.
Yes, it may be complicated, yet that complexity will compel you to learn new and valuable things. Sure, it might be frustrating and tedious, and yet that will build the power of your patience.
Instead of resenting or fighting against the necessity of effort, be thankful that you're in a position to make that effort, and by so doing to create new value. Choose to enjoy the effort, and you'll get the greatest possible rewards from whatever you're doing.
