Have you ever received something you really wanted really easy?
Felt good didn’t it? What about when you finally got something after some serious graft, or even some scars? Was the feeling as good, bette because it was harder to come by?
Speaking to my good friend Aftab Malhotra (https://www.linkedin.com/in/aftabmalhotra) we were talking about getting success easy, and hitting the stars without the scars.
The age we live in, there is a generation that EXPECT things to come easy. The X- Factor generation, added with the power of social media has resulted in an expectation, of WHY should i have to out the graft in, or even why do I have to go through sorrow or gain some scars before i can taste the true fruits of success.
The old school though process can be…no pain no gain, or you get nothing without hard work, or if it’s easy it is not worth having.
We all want the stars, no one wants the scars. Is it possible to get the real success you want without the scars to show for them.
There are numerous examples of history of people having to experience scars that made them even more determined to go on to success.
Does this tell you that you have to have suffered some serious scars to be seriously successful?
No what it does tell us if that if you don’t give up, you will succeed. It also shows us that the scars actually make us.
I don’t know anyone that doesn’t have ‘scars’. The scars can be personal, or from business.
So do you go looking for scars? No, but its might be useful to know what a ‘scar’ is especially when you are going through it, to appreciate it.

Success always comes at a cost, but that cost may not be obvious.
History suggests that most things won’t come easy.
What we can all take from this is that, the only thing that is permanent is change. Nothing stays forever, so if you are in pain now, it won’t last, if you are experience success, it will become relative to your life’s expectations.
Scars come in all shapes and sizes, just remember one persons scars is another person’s success.
