Earning your way

You get what you pay for. You get what you work for.

If you’re not willing or able to invest in it, you’ll eventually find yourself disappointed by it. What you can give your work, your attention, your care, time, and resources to you can have some reasonable hope of being able to depend upon.

A free ride is not a good ride. A free lunch is not really a thing.

That’s actually great news. Because the necessity of earning your way is among life’s best opportunities.

By very definition, to experience a meaningful life you must fill your life with meaning. What demands the best of you is what engenders the best within you.

In this place, using whatever constitutes this moment, with your energy, intention, and love, make value. And join in as life benefits from the fruits of your efforts.

— Ralph Marston
