so many people are in such a hurry to success that they eagerly take any shortcuts that come across their way. In reality, shortcuts usually lead to disappointments rather than quicker success.
The key to any long-term success is to take the necessary steps to steadily progress rather than skip any of them.
This would be true whether the goals are financial or health or relationship related.
I've seen gullible people buy into the many 'get rich quick' or 'lost weight fast' schemes out there only to find out that none of them work except in relieving you of the money paid for such products or programs. A friend of mine even bought one of those home devices that electronically stimulate belly muscle contractions thinking that weight lost is possible while wathcing TV. This friend, who did not want to put in the work of exercising in a gym, is still overweight today.
