"We Get What We Give."

Whether in the gym, in our work or in our relationships - we get what we give, more specifically we get what we consistently give, and not what we offer occasionally and definitely not from giving nothing.

Something For Nothing? What?

The idea of something for nothing, though a popular one, is not one that leads to us to giving our best and in turn being our best.

How can we expect the best from
 ourselves or in our relationships or from our work or from our workouts when our investment into them is mediocre at best?

To achieve our greatest vision for our lives takes the greatest effort from us in our lives. And our greatest effort must be consistent in all we do because how we do anything is how we do everything. And in order to make it a habit to give more than we hope to receive we must habitually practice giving more than we expect to receive.

But what happens when I give much to someone and receive little in return?

That's a valid thought and something that could definitely happen in our trlationships in particular, but so is the other side of that thought,

"What happens when I give much to someone and they give even more in return?" 

This is where the magic in relationships happen. The place where both people aim to so fully meet the needs of the other that no one is left wanting or, perhaps worse, feeling used.

The realization of our vision has a great cost and we must pay - in attention and the understanding that we reap what we sow.

Thanks for reading.
See you next time.
