Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 109. The proverb today is no pain no
gain. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. This proverb basically means that
one must work hard and suffer in order to advance and make progress. Yeah.
Definitely. The origin of this quote comes from Ben Franklin. Yeah. He is one of
my favorite ones to actually give quotes from. Obvious, so many good quotes. In an
article titled "The Way to Wealth" in 1758 and here's the quote. "There are no gains
without pain. All right. Let's continue. Jane Fonda you know, the famous
actress you know, daughter of Henry Fonda. Although she's a senior citizen herself
these days. Jane Fonda popularized this proverb even more with her aerobics
video in the 1980s. Fitness centers often had a sign on the wall with this proverb
as a type of encouragement for working out. Yeah I think many of them still do
today. So it wouldn't be uncommon if you went to a fitness center or gym and they
have this kind of as a motto or a sign on the wall to encourage people to work
harder. "No pain no gain. " So if don't you know have some aches and pains from
working out , you probably won't get stronger or lose weight or build
yourself up. Okay. And let's look at some examples here. Okay good. Example number
one. If you're really serious about losing weight. You must start an exercise
program as well as cutting down on your food intake. Again remember, no pain no
gain. Or number two. If you want to compete professionally you must practice
for at least five hours a day. It is must. No pain no gain. So that's the way we
usually use it. We always add it to something like that. To get the point
across. That you know. I know, I know it's uncomfortable I know you
don't want to do it, but you're not really going to advance and not going to get
ahead. If you don't put in some, if you don't actually go through some pain in
order to get ahead. All right. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for
your time. Bye-bye.
