How to Achieve Great Results Leveraging the Law of the Land – Part 1

There’s a time to sow, and there’s a time to reap. If you don’t sow at seed time, you reap nothing at harvest time. To reap plenty, you must sow plenty.

Great results aren’t achieved in one day. They require time and effort. Producing remarkable results works a lot like the law of the land. And in this series, I highlight certain principles from that law so that you can leverage them to achieve exceptional results in your life.

The first principle I cover is the principle of work.

Tending a field demands tireless work. You must tilt the ground, plant your seed, water them, watch over them, protect your field from all sorts of destructive agents, etc. To reap your harvest, you must work diligently—nonstop.

If you’re not prepared to work, don’t own a farm. Likewise, if you’re not ready to work, don’t pursue great goals. Pursuing ambitious goals and achieving remarkable results requires hard work.

Many people want remarkable results but don’t want to put in significant effort. It doesn’t work that way. Those who refuse to sow work, at the same time, refuse to reap results.

You have grand ambitions, but are you putting in the work to fulfill them. Do your actions match your aspirations?

Work, that’s the key that unlocks the door to great results. You must put in the sweat equity. There’s no way around. No work, no results. It’s that simple.

If you want great results, you must welcome great effort; you must choose to pay the price; you must accept waking up early and sleeping late.

While others are still sleeping, you’re out there working on your goals. While others are wasting their time on meaningless activities, you’re tilting the ground and tending to your field. While others are squandering their money on baubles, you’re investing yours in your goals. It’s not an indictment on them; their goals are different than yours.

Bottom line: Your actions must match your ambitions.

The good news is that if you’re committed to your goal and passionate about it, the work you put in yield somewhat pleasurable. That’s a bit of a paradox: you work “hard,” but the work is “pleasant” at the same time.

That goes to say that “hard” doesn’t have to be a bad thing. “Hard” can also mean “gratifying.” Hard work makes your results rewarding; you’re engaged in fulfilling work.

Don’t shy off away from hard work; it’s part of achieving great results. You must get your hands dirty. Put in your best work, and see results abound in your life.
