MYST 154: Nothing for Nothing

TANSTAAFL: There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

You get what you pay for.

My phrase: You don’t get nothing for nothing.  (Yeah. I know it’s poor grammar.)

The bottom line is if you don’t take the right actions, you won’t get anything. That applies to school, on the job, at home, and certainly as you try to lose weight. Why do I say “try” to lose weight? Because many (most?) people aren’t willing to totally commit, to be fully engaged, or to put their money where their mouth is.

How many balls must be hit before a golfer becomes great? Can you skip that step in attaining greatness?

    This one is great. And I believe to the point. We all have to buy into what we are doing and if we do not then we are not going to stick with it.

      Thanks for the fantastic feedback, Charles, both here and in the LoseIt forums! I truly believe that people will receive in direct proportion to what they give. Do you want happiness in life? You need to be happy with others. Do you want business success? You need to put the effort into your business. Do you want to lose weight? You need to pay the price by working correctly, eating correctly, and if necessary, becoming financially committed. (Or as my favorite inspirational speaker says, “You don’t PAY the price for success, you ENJOY the price of success.”
