Value of the journey
Be eager to make the difficult journeys. Because each journey always gives value to its destination.
If you arrive without any effort, how can you appreciate the place where you’ve arrived? How will you recognize the value of where you are if you have not borne the cost of getting there?
There’s a reason why children are eager to do things for themselves even when they don’t have to. They understand the irreplaceable value of the journey.
Pleasure, ease, and convenience have their place. Yet a life of fulfillment requires more.
When you’ve climbed a mountain, the view is much more meaningful than if you had merely been whisked to the top. Every step of the journey adds richness to the destination.
You deserve more than merely being where you want to be. Give yourself the great adventure of working your way there.
