Whatever you endeavor is in life…this principle applies.
It has been said if you work hard when you don’t need to you won’t have to work hard when you can’t. It’s the years or preparation, practice, consistency, all the accumulated little things that make it look easy. Of course, life is never easy for long.
A plane that is soaring at 30,000 feet can avoid storms a lot easier. It can go much faster with less energy because it has strived high.
