Thomas Alva Edison
I was thinking about hard work when I was on my hands and knees scrubbing my bathroom floor. I made the big mistake of having white grout put down when the tile was laid. My German shepherd loves to go and lie on the cool tile floor and lick it, so not only does it get dirty from the oils and general dirt on his body, but he coats it with a nice layer of saliva. My hands ached and my knees were sore and I was wondering why I was doing this. The only thing I could think of was that I had a goal to get the floor clean. Despite the effort it has taken, I have a sense of accomplishment after doing hard work, especially when you can admire the end result.
This rule of hard work can be applied to anything we do. It could be school work, house work, yard work, or office work. We may not be enjoying what we are doing, but if we stick with it to the end, and finish what we started, we will find a sense of peace in what we have accomplished.
Go forth, work hard, and find your inner peace.
