The most valuable things are those you earn, especially through effort and perseverance.
Anything you’ve worked hard to get and worked hard to keep carries a deeper meaning.
If you don’t work to earn it, you don’t appreciate and value it the same. Value isn’t just created from what you have, but through what it takes to get what you have and what it takes to keep it.
The typical view of hard work is to see it as a cost. I don’t believe that’s the best way to look at it, or even a good way.
Hard work creates value, directly by what it earns you and indirectly through what those earned things mean to you because of your hard work.
Answer the call. Do the work.
