Motivational Quote - There are no short cuts to any place worth going.

SparkPeople's Comments

Did you ever sneak a peak at your neighbor’s answers during a test when you were in school? Or taken the easy way out at work, only to have your boss still like the work produced? While many of us once in a while felt compelled to take the easy way out of a difficult situation, like a test or work project, it likely resulted in us regretting it later. The reason for this is because we did not earn what we did or because we took a short cut to get a desired result. Compare this feeling to when you put in that extra effort to finish off a job or make it that much better and it’s a world of a difference. There might not be a better feeling than finishing off a great project that you put in a lot of time and effort into. So if it’s something you really want to accomplish, take the time to do everything right and on your own, it will be worth it in the end.

Reminds me of my elementary teacher in a country school in about 1945--"Anything worth doing at all is worth doing well."

There are no short cuts to losing weight. You cannot skip meals hoping that it will give you great does not happen. You have to eat at least real meals every day and your imput has to balance with your output in exercise.....NO SHORT CUTS!!!!!! I belong to TOPS and when we weigh in every Thursday, we all use a motivational quote when doing weight report. This will be mine for tomorrow. Thanks. Remember, NO SHORT CUTS!!!!

Short cuts? are for the lazy who are not interested in living life to the full, which means giving of yourself. Hard, very hard, but essential.

This speaks volumes to me. I know there are no short cuts to living a healthier lifestyle. I have to beat the broader path and stick to it. Perseverance always pays off in the end. Donna
