You Get What You Give

You get what you give...Simple concept that can be applied to every aspect of your life but so many times we forget this. If you are a blogger who reads and comments on many blogs, bloggers will then find you. If you are a student and spend lots of time studying and doing your work, you get good grades. If you are self employed and are disciplined and put the time and hard work in, you will be successful. If you do good deeds for others, you have good karma. If you eat well and regularly workout you will be healthier. And on and on...

I think people tend to forget about this simple phrase because sometimes the rewards take some time to appear but will eventually come. Are there always a few exceptions, unfortunately yes but most of the time you get what you deserve. If you are working your booty off on your blog will you have a 1000 views overnight? No. But you will see a steady increase even if it is small. If you start a diet and workout routine you won't be skinny overnight but you will steadily be getting healthier. On the other side of things, if you are a nasty, miserable person, you will eventually lose friends and only have other miserable people to be around. You get what you give.

So if you aren't getting what you deserve or want, take a look at your actions. Are you truly putting the work in or are you acting how you want others to act? Be honest with yourself. Sometimes it is hard to admit we aren't doing all we can but we do have the power to change that and in turn things will change for us. Nothing changes if nothing changes. I think we all need this reminder once in a while, myself included. xoxo


  1. I think it's getting harder and harder for people to realize this because we live in an instantaneous world. Wants an answer to a question? Google it. Wants an amazing meal? You don't have to spend a lot of time making it, just pick it up at a restaurant.

  2. You hit the nail right on the head with that one. Nothing changes if nothing changes. I like it! Most things worth it don't come easy. I tell myself that everyday I think. Great post!


  3. I love both of those quotes and I totally needed to read this today. Thanks :)
