No pain, no gain 不勞則無獲
no gains without pains = no pain, no gain
If you want to improve, you must work so hard that it hurts. (Associated with sports and physical exercise.) Suffering is needed to make progress, as in “I’ve worked for hours on those irregular French verbs, but no pain, no gain.” Although this idiom is often associated with athletic coaches who urge athletes to train harder, it dates from the 1500s and was already in John Ray’s proverb collection of 1670 as “Without pains, no gains.”
What is the opposite of pain? Nine out of 10 people will say, “Pleasure.”

As much as everyone tries to minimize pain in life, the fact remains that pain is unavoidable. Everything has its ups and downs. Therefore, if we want to succeed in life, the key is not to eliminate pain entirely (for that is impossible), but rather to learn how to understand and accept the pain.
No pain, no gain many people tend to overdo their exercise programs looking for quick results
