As I think back over my past I have to say that I find this statement true. As I have worked hard to do some tasks or goals, the cost was not cheap. It took my time and effort. Sometimes I had to listen to lectures 3 or 4 times to get what I needed to get out of it in understanding about Scholar Skills. Sometimes I have had to read a book over and over again and then discuss it with people in order to get a better understanding of what it meant to me or how this information could change me.
As I pay the price to learn to read well, I find that I enjoy it more each time AND I am learning faster each time.
