If you are going to do anything that will be remembered in this lifetime as you pursue success, it will cost you something. Whether it costs you hard work, pain, adversity, or the loss of friends and family, there will be a payment required. So, how do we pay our dues as we pursue our purpose and success? Some would say that it can be accomplished by increasing who you know, or how much money you have, or even luck…, well today I tell you that it comes from hard work and paying your dues.
Dues that are made up of sleepless nights, building authentic relationships, and a dependence upon faith while going through a process of stretching and breaking only to be remade on the other side even better than when you started. There will be some who do not want to see you do well, there will be some who will even stand in your way as an obstacle, but do not let that deter you, pay your dues and your purpose will become more and more clear each day. Pursue it with passionate intention and you will be rewarded, but you must put in the work. On today’s show we have an example of a young woman who is operating in her purpose and passionately pursuing her dreams. A rising star in journalism, Heather Zwillenberg will be joining us live from New York to give her journalistic thoughts on “What Does it Take to Pay Your Dues as You Develop Your Craft?“
