Most of us like easy and there’s nothing wrong with that.
After all, if I had my choice between easy and hard, I’d take easy every single time. But unfortunately, that’s not how the world usually works.
Sure we can always take the easy way out, but that’s probably not going to get us to where we want to go.
It builds character
I have this running joke with my kids that when anything crappy happens in their life, I tell them it builds character. The truth is that we learn from our mistakes, our frustrations and our failures. It may not always make us a “better” person, but it usually makes us a stronger one.
We learn to learn to overcome, to work around, and ultimately to pick ourselves up and try again. We don’t just come back, however, we come back different. We come back better and stronger than before.
Sure we’d all like to avoid pain and making mistakes, but that’s simply part of the game.
We need to stop trying to avoid these things and instead focus our energy on going through them and coming back stronger than before.
Are you ready?
