“You reap what you sow.”
Bare minimum effort gets you bare minimum results.
I don’t know anyone who has attained success, giving the bare minimum at whatever level.
Do you want results? Then you want to sacrifice, go the extra mile, be patient, and go a little harder and a little longer. You may not like it, but you know it’s necessary.
And if you want the benefits and rewards without doing the work, you will end up disappointed.
