No Pain, No Gain: The Mantra to Success in Today’s World

If you really want to accomplish something, you must put forth the necessary effort. Nothing worthwhile in life is possible without it.

You must put forth motivation in learning new abilities when establishing a business, just as you must put forth effort in becoming fitter.

Taking a loss will almost certainly cause you pain, but then those blunders will teach you valuable lessons; and the list could go on and on.

You would have to go through considerable suffering in order to achieve your objectives. Below is one of the most popular quotes of all times, that one of our forefathers wrote approximately 300 years ago, around 1734 AD:

      “There are no pains without gains

— Benjamin Franklin

The Good Lessons to Handpick from Pain

We never would mature if we didn’t learn from our mistakes as children.

It’s no surprise, then, that some people age slowly. Whenever a child or adult is overprotected and indulged (spoiled), and not permitted to face the world’s usual hurts, they may struggle more in life than if they had matured through the pain.

“We change our behavior when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. Consequences give us the pain that motivates us to change.”

Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend

When adequate limits are established early in life and continue into adulthood, there seem to be consequences.

When you step outside of your comfort zone, you will feel pain. You would experience anguish if you lack limitations.

Two basic boundaries are that you must never touch a hot stove burner and that you must never take chocolates from an unknown person.

Others frequently rep you for talking back and not minding your etiquette.

Despite the fact that there are dozens of explicit and implicit limitations in life designed to save us from suffering unnecessarily, we frequently push them.

It is the only option for many of us to learn!

Good Education

Getting a good education is yet another problem that modern people face. You must study diligently, sweat through tests, and persevere until graduation.

True, many of you might have breezed through it and received straight A’s, but I guarantee you that the majority of us did not!

When they received unsatisfactory grades, several people experienced physical or psychological suffering.

Pain in Jobs

Then there are all the aches and pains of a job, which could be simultaneously enjoyable and demanding at the same time, although they seem to alternate.

How else would we grow if it weren’t for the difficult moments at work?

Looking back, it appears like nearly all of the positive experiences in our lives have resulted through overcoming adversity. Only if we knew then what we understand now about how harsh times taught us, grew us, and matured us.

Learning from the Pains

Whatever are you going through at the moment now that you’re finding it challenging?

What is life attempting to teach me?” you might wonder. Alternatively, “What else can I learn from my current situation?”

There’s a considerable chance you’ll emerge from the ordeal with more wisdom and understanding, as well as being stronger, more experienced, and a better person.

Only when or if you break in or give up will a problem be capable of overcoming you.

Start by looking at what your struggles have gotten you so far in life. Why could they get you some news? Because you didn’t give up. You’ve never given up or given in!

So keep going. Lift your head up and remember that life’s challenges can be beneficial to you.

Don’t give up. Never quit up or give in whenever you believe you can acquire something new, emerge stronger, evolve, and become a better person as a result of your experience.

‘Efforts’, an alternate way of looking at pain

Even though everyone strives to prevent suffering as much as possible, it is inevitable. There are ups and downs to everything.

As a result, if we want to achieve in life, we must start to interpret and embrace sufferings rather than seek to eradicate it totally (which is impossible).

Pain or Suffering is “Effort”

What we refer to as “suffering or pain” is often a question of “effort.”

Physical fitness requires a lot of effort. It is excruciatingly uncomfortable to think through such a complex concept. It takes a lot of effort to maintain a long-term relationship.

While effort might well be “difficult,” the purpose of life must not be to avoid it. Anyone seeking for a smooth trip will be missing out and on life’s immeasurable joys.

“One cannot get through life without pain. What we can do is choose how to use the pain life presents to us.”

True pleasure is inextricably linked to suffering.

The more pleasure you have, the more effort you’ll have to put in.

Beyond that, the more suffering we endure on the path to a goal, the more we enjoy the achievement of that goal.

To put it another way, the greater we pay, the more we value. When you flee from suffering or effort, you’re really fleeing pleasure.

Each of us must go through the process of effort. Our spirits have returned to earth to learn important life lessons, and that is the reason why we have arrived here in the first instance.

Our significance is found in exercising our free will to settle conflict, struggle, and achieve; in refusing to flee and instead bite the bullet.

Final Thoughts

There is no gain without pain.

The adage for practical means that we cannot achieve true success in any field without putting forth a significant deal of effort and sacrifice on our part.

Instead of seeing setbacks as burdensome bricks in your mental backpack, you’re utilizing them to construct a staircase that will one day lead to the clouds.

We’d rather disregard the painful truth that without pain, there is no gain.

Nonetheless, it is correct.

A beacon of sunshine is the most effective approach to banish darkness.

Facing fear in the eyes is the most effective method to overcome it. “What possible possibility lies behind this?” is the greatest way to approach a problem.

The universe is designed in such a manner that opportunities always come after the difficulty, and pain inevitably comes well before gain.
