 [=Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, 'Bitstream Vera Sans', sans-serif]In my experience, cultivating a work ethic is a similar feeling to when you lift weights. As you gradually get bigger and stronger, you look at the majority of people who are frail and weak and you think, “Damn it would SUCK to be in that position…To have that lack of personal control over your own physical safety and health and mobility…”[/]

[=Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, 'Bitstream Vera Sans', sans-serif]Similarly, when you have a well-developed work ethic and you look at people who get all cranky and flustered when they have to put in a few hours, you think “Damn the lack of control would suck…So many possibilities in the world and this person will never achieve them, because they think the path is to do the least amount possible for the most possible gain. They don’t realize that a work ethic needs to be cultivated over time, and that if you don’t have it you’ll rarely achieve anything worthwhile.”[/]

And as you knock down bigger and bigger goals, the sky becomes the limit in terms of your possibilities.[/][=Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, 'Bitstream Vera Sans', sans-serif]I think that while these experiences wear you out for a while, they also build up a lot of personal belief that you can undertake goals that will take longer periods of time.
