We all want the “finished product”.
We all like the feeling once it arrives.
But we can’t have it or feel it’s presence without one very important step long before it gets here.
If you were building a home, you wouldn’t get to decorate each room without the work that started the project to begin with.
Homes are built on foundations.
Just like any business, organization, friendship, or a persons integrity and character.
To build a foundation you have to be willing to dig.
You’ve got to “un-earth” the very ground beneath you in order to get it to level ground.
If what you are building is something you plan on having around for any extended period of time this part of the process is a must.
So the next time you look around and see a result you like in the life of someone else, in a business, an organization, a relationship…
Just know one thing.
It didn’t get there without the committed efforts of the people involved being willing to do three things.
1. Un-Earth everything beneath “their feet”
2. Dig up everything in order to get to “level ground”
3. Pay the price it would take to do so.
Anything less is a short-cut.
And anything that matters in life isn’t built on short-cuts.
So what are you waiting for?
