Well worth it

Life on any given day can be a lot of trouble. And life is well worth any trouble, any challenge that it imposes.

The process of getting things done is messy and inconvenient. The resulting positive difference you make is well worth the inconvenience.

Every good thing in life has a price. But if the price is the only thing you focus on, you miss seeing life’s great value.

For when you are willing to pay the price, what you get is a reward even greater than the price you’ve paid. What you get, what you experience, what you live and create, is well worth all you put into it.

If you avoid the challenges and hide from the difficult tasks, you lose out on the great value that you yourself can create. Choose instead to embrace the price, to willingly pay it, and you’ll find that choice to be well worth it.

Embedded in each challenge, in each difficulty, in every price, is a great reward. Step up, do what you must, and experience for yourself that the richness coming into your world is well worth the price you pay.

— Ralph Marston
