Things that are easy for us to accomplish are a bigger deterrent to our growth than anything else.
Easy doesn’t push back or disagree with us. Easy lets us by without a fight. An easy workout, an easy challenge, an easy assignment. I can almost guarantee none of these tasks will produce any personal growth or progress. Hard, or uncomfortable, forces us to grow, get better, smarter, faster, and stronger, to overcome it. Hard doesn’t care about our feelings or who we think we are. It just wants to stop us from accomplishing what we are striving for. Hard will make us better every day. When you get to the fork in the road that gives the option of easy or hard, go the hard way. Your life will thank you for it later.
