“Good things come to those who wait — and work, and sacrifice, and maybe even suffer.”
—Arthur C. Brooks, American social scientist, musician, and columnist
To what degree does today’s quote resonate with you? Consider taking a closer look into your experiences of waiting, working, sacrificing, and suffering.
How much good has come to you through these attributes? How have these aspects of life influenced your values and shaped your character?
To what extent did you recognize beforehand that much good was on the other side during these challenging times?
How, with this hindsight, can you view and experience current and future difficulties to glean the lessons and value they offer far sooner?
Where in your personal or professional worlds can you acknowledge and embrace that many of the best things in life are worth the squeeze?
