A battle won with cheating is a battle won with ease.
It does not have to be a battle, it can any regular day achievement: career, love and relationship or family life. The cheat makes the win less rewarding. And you dont want anything to spoil your winning moment.
Lets take the example when a women is given painrelievers for birthing. After giving birth such women have reported the experience to be less fulfilling.
Another example taking metformin for weight loss rather sweating in the gym. And a host of other options that are available for reducing weight some are as scary as implanting metal gauzes on the tounge. The gauze makes it a terrible experience to eat anything and everything.
Your gut knows it all. You may cheat the world but cannot cheat yourself.
Be patient and develop your highest version that would be the most fulfilling experience of the lifetime.
