Sometimes the reward you see from your hard work looks like it is all for nothing. But one day you will see your hard work did pay off. We look for instant gratification and if we don't see it in an instant we quit looking for it. It may be days or even months later but you will see that your hard work was worth it. Remember the saying "A Life worth living takes hard work". And if you don't put the hard work in it to enjoy your Life then you will have a hard Life to live.
