Nothing is easy in life

Nothing is easy in life if you want something, you got to do it.

Everything in life is a responsibility, effort and hard work.

If you want something, you got to put the work into it to get to your goals.

Everything in life takes work to make things happen, you got to put the effort into it to achieve your goals.

For example, you want to learn to drive, your goal is to pass your driving test and get your license. How are you going to pass your driving test? You got to have a lot of driving lessons, you got to learn how to drive, how the car operates and how to control the car without crashing. You got to put the effort into learning to drive, learn the basics of how you move off and learn the fundamentals of driving. It takes time to learn the skills of driving because driving is a skill and not everyone are good drivers. Some people are not confident in driving because they get nervous on the road.

It takes time, practice, experience and skills to develop to be a confident driver.

Driving is a skill to learn if you want the freedom to go on a road trip to escape from home, go to different places and drive anywhere.

Learning to drive takes time to learn the skills of how to drive a car. You’re not going to have your first driving lesson and then you know how to drive.

You got to develop a skill of driving first, you got to know all the basics of driving like moving off, using the gears, getting the biting point and using clutch control if your learning to drive a manual.

You got to practice your driving with your instructor and your parents to get the skills. Learning to drive is all about being consistent, you’ve learnt the basics of driving on moving off, you should learn how to steer your wheels and keep at it.

Once you’ve mastered your basic driving skills like clutch control, avoid stalling the car, your steering and observations, your driving instructor will teach you to drive on the main roads.

To pass your driving test, you got to pass your theory test first. The theory test is your priority before you take your driving test, you got to revise your theory, study the highway code and keep practising your theory until your ready to take your theory test.

It takes a lot of time and effort to learn the highway code for your theory. You got to work very hard to revise your theory.

The theory test can be hard if you don’t revise because nothing is easy in life, everything in life takes a lot of work to get to your goals.

Your goal is to pass your theory and your driving test, you have to work very hard to revise your theory, less watching TV and less playing computer games. Do it after you passed your theory and your driving test and then you can celebrate.

If you want to achieve something, you have to be:

  1. Dedicated
  2. Determine
  3. Eager to do it
  4. Enthusiastic
  5. Dream big
  6. Set goals
  7. Be consistent
  8. Keep at it
  9. Motivation
  10. Overcome difficulty
  11. Self-discipline

Everything you do take a lot of the things I mentioned there on the list that what you should do to achieve your goals.

Put some effort into it 

If you want something, you got to do it, you got to put some effort into the work that you want to achieve until you get to what you want.

You can’t just wait there and expect things to come to you without putting the work into it because that’s not how life works.

Take responsibility 

Life is a responsibility because we have to look after ourselves, not just the work we do, we have to work on ourselves like your health and body. If you got kids or your parents are ill, you got to take the responsibility to look after your kids and your parents who are not well.

Don’t let that negativity to get into you and make you think that life is difficult, nothing is easy in life and life is a responsibility and then give up in life.

Life is hard but you got to think positive that what you can do to get over the obstacles. Think about helping people for your responsibility and that will make you happier because you’re helping them to achieve their goals to success.

That is a big responsibility to do to help people to get to their goals.

You have to take responsibility for yourself because you got to look after yourself, you will have to learn to cook if you’re living on your own and you got to eat. You don’t have to be a professional chef to be able to cook, you just learn the basic of cooking and don’t make it undercooked or overcooked.

You see, life is a responsibility because we have to eat, drink, sleep, go to work and earn money for living.

We have to pay bills, mortgages, insurance, rent, electricity and gas and loads of things to do if you got your own place. Luckily, I’m still living with my mum and I don’t have to worry about paying all that stuff.

If I got my own place, I will have to take a lot of responsibilities and be productive all the time.

The responsibilities you take in life is:

  1. Housework
  2. Look after yourself
  3. Cooking
  4. Working
  5. Gardening
  6. Cleaning
  7. Be productive
  8. Shopping

These are the responsibilities that we have to take in life because as I said: nothing is easy in life, everything is a responsibility, effort and hard work.

When you have your own place, got your own families with kids, you have to take a lot of responsibilities and you have to be productive all the time. The responsibilities you have to do in your house is housework like laundry, hovering, sweeping the floor, moping the floor, hanging the clothes, cooking and washing up. It will be a lot of headaches if you got your own place, especially if your working in a 9-5 job and you definitely won’t have enough time for that.

If you got a garden in your house, you will have to do gardening like cutting the grass or watering the plants if you’re growing something.

There’s a lot of responsibilities in life, but we tend to procrastinate about doing things, and we tend to avoid responsibilities like housework.

Life is stressful when you got your own place, living on your own and independent. You won’t have the luxury to sit around at home, expect things to come to you, you will have to cook and then wash up. You have to be productive all the time at home to look after the house, you have to do housework like emptying the bins, cleaning, tidying up and washing dishes.

It seems very stressful to do everything at once, and you have to pay bills and tax.

Expect your goals to be easy 

A lot of people expect their goals to be easy.

For example, you go to the gym once, you expect to be fit and strong from going to the gym once. You can’t just go to the gym once and expect to get results for your goals.

You have to keep going to the gym until you get to your fitness goals, you have to be consistent, you have to put in a lot of effort with dedication and motivation to train in the gym.

If you want to build muscles, you have to lift heavy weights, eat and sleep to rest your body to help your muscles to grow.

Your body needs to recover after working out in the gym and you need to eat to grow muscles.

Going to the gym regularly is not easy because you have to put the effort to work out in the gym, you have to eat to get the metabolism for your muscles to grow, you got to get enough sleep to help your body to recover and grow your muscles.

Life is hard when you got goals to set.

You have to sacrifice yourself to suffer until you get results for your goals.

It takes discipline to get to your goals and you have to get out of your comfort zone. The reason why you can’t get to your goals is that you’re in your comfort zone and you didn’t face the suffering of the pain.

Get over the difficulties of life

Life is tough but you have to believe in yourself that you can take the responsibilities to do everything and achieve all your goals.

All I have to say is don’t give up no matter how hard it is, keep following your dreams to come true and stay positive.

I hope this blog post is motivating and informative. Feel free to share it on social media.

  1. Yes you are right, nothing is easy in life! 

    What i’ve learnt from your article is to dream big and fulfill your dreams, being motivated every step of the way. May you continue to live your life to the full.

    For so many years i didn’t dream big, but they were small dreams that added up over the years and gradually got bigger. Sometimes life is a marathon learning the skills along the way by being consistent and putting into practice what we have learnt to help others.

    Remember along your journey have time to play, have fun and enjoy the things that make you happy. As the saying goes, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”

    Stay motivated.

    Big hug! 😊

  2. Gordon this is a topic that many people out there still haven’t had answers to, I mean they may be e read it or heard it but still needs to hear some more. The issue of consistency in what you do is important for success and another thing is you’ve got to maswera what you do. I heard this also from a Nigerian Billionaire and it got to me. Just like you said nothing come easy and if I must reign then I must fight. Really needs article here, thank you for sharing.

  3. Hi Gordon. Thank you for this post filled with positivity. I really appreciated it. There is a lot of great insights in your article. I am an active guy who likes physical training and fitness and, you are right, it takes a lot of effort to achieve your goals. Fitness and weight lifting is the right subject when comes the time to say that you have to suffer to get results. No pain, no gain!

  4. Your guide is very helpful for everyone. Going to the gym regularly is not easy because we have to put the effort to work out in the gym, we have to eat to get the metabolism for our muscles to grow, we got to get enough sleep to help our body to recover and grow our muscles. Life is stressful when we got your own place, living on your own and independent. We won’t have the luxury to sit around at home, expect things to come to you, you will have to cook and then wash up. Thanks for Sharing.

  5. Hello Gordon – Yes for sure life is work and we must take responsibility for everything we do.  If you have a family then you have even more responsibility.  And we wonder why there is so much stress contained in individuals.  One thing is for sure, it is best to start out early and build up gradually to gain experience before taking on the heavy ones.

  6. Thanks for your article about how to get things done in life.  Yes, it’s true we must be responsible and put in the work if we plan to accomplish things, however, I’m not sure we necessarily need to suffer as a result.  Struggle is definitely part of the deal much of the time but I’m not so sure about the suffering.  I know there are times when suffering enters our lives but I think we can struggle without suffering.  Keep up the good work.  Take care.

    Bob
