Shortcuts are Dangerous
It is not wrong but it is dangerous. I first heard this phrase in a movie, “KARATE KID”. Mr Miyage, the karate teacher was teaching his apprentice how when we choose the shorter way it always lead to danger.
Many times we don’t reach our potential because we think it will not take too long. Maturity takes time. There is saying, “Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.”
It applies in everything we do. From building our financial portfolio, climbing the ladder of success, having sex with our wife – don’t make it too fast. Financial author Dave Ramsey would say, ” Don’t microwave the process.” If you think you get rich quick, then financial peace is not for you.
Shortcuts don’t pay off in the long run. Be patient my brother.
