“You get What you put in” Follow up to Weekly Quotes, Tips and Positive Inspiration

22 Apr

I could scream about this one I really could….Especially because I’m so passionate about putting in time into ones self to improve yourself and what you do.


With anything in life sports, the arts, business, anything, anything, anything you have to put in time and effort to get the results you need and sometimes you may not see results until months, or even years later. Half effort, you get half results…Full effort full results.


This is something that I learned to be true and even more so the older I get.

There are people out there who want to do great things and set out to do it but when they realize the hard work that comes with it, the endless hours and dedication that they have to put in, they start to realize its not a walk in the park.


Usually people sometimes see the end results of something, they don’t see the journey and the process. You see the successful rappers and singers, Beyonce, Jay Z, P-Diddy, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Baby Face, Quincy Jones, Dr. Dre and the list goes on…But you don’t see the late night studio rehearsals, the days of frustration because your creativity is blocked, you don’t see the months and even years of set backs, you don’t see the juggling act of life, career, and personal issues, you don’t see the constant meetings, you don’t see the one hundreds and one trails and tribulations, all you see is the final and end result which looks good to many.


I love to dance and I know you have to work hard to put together a dance routine to make sure it looks good, that everyone is together, and tweak what needs to be tweaked. Most people just see the final choreographed piece or the world tours, they don’t see the hours of rehearsal they don’t see the injuries dancers get from the physical demands they put on there bodies, they don’t see when your body gives up on you, feeling tired, and unhappy because all you do is rehearse, you miss out on time with friends and family, they don’t see the constant do it again, do it again and do it again, they don’t see the long distance travels to get to and from rehearsals, they don’t see the reality of the hard work that is put into making ones career become a reality.


People, and I say people because I’m learning one of the may reasons why not many get to where they want to get is because many are not willing to do what very few do, which is to do what the other person is willing not to do, and that is put in time.


You study late at night for your math test so you could pass it, well it’s the same thing, no one wants to stay up late and study math, but if you want to pass that test, chances are you have to put in the hours of study time…well you have to put in the hours to train yourself to get to where you want to get.


I’ve come across different types of people who want right away and who are not willing to put in the time and work to get the results. And you know what that’s fine that’s there prerogative it’s not for me to judge.

At the same time, we all need to know that you can’t expect much when you put in very little.



The time and effort that these dancers had to put in to look like this and to do this.



Yes he his a Mogul, but it didn’t happen overnight.
