Psychology for Everyone

The Path of Least Resistance Hinders Success – Valuable Outcomes Take Work

Hard work. Something that many of us associate with school, career, and family life. We are taught that we need to put in effort to reap the rewards of life. But on a practical level, what we often see are people looking for the easy route. The “for Dummies” line of books is a perfect example. We want the answer pre-packaged and delivered to our door with no effort required. How does that affect our psyche?

We actually do not value things that we get easily. And for good reason, because that usually indicates poor value. Anythings that can be had with almost no effort means that anyone can have it. Automatically, we have to up the ante to make it worth aspiring to have. Education is available to all, so higher education is sought. Food is available to all, so gourmet food is sought. Relationships are available to all, so quality relationships are sought. Happiness takes work, that rule is a constant.
