No Pain, No Gain

Do you agree with Jane Fonda’s favorite exercise motto, “no pain, no gain?” Is it impossible to attain greatness without considerable hardship?

Other than ways like inheritance, winning the lottery or just plain ole good luck (that fickle little bitch) yeah I guess unless you are willing to put in the pain factor you aren’t going to win big. Only thing is I see a lot of these bastards – like rich motherfuckers, who don’t do much work and are not willing to do any either – who always seem to get the lucky breaks and make money and prestige with the good stuff coming their way. They have the best jobs, paid well and live in luxury. Why can’t I have that?

So no, for schmucks like you and me, unless we put in extra, extra with a liberal dose of overtime and pain, we aren’t going to get the gain. Blood, sweat and tears for that little bit of honey that will ease the pain. Stuck in a rut, windmill of chaos, treadmill from hell, lonely road in the dark and miserable rainy night – that’s what we need to do.

And if we are lucky, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow awaits us!
