Choose your hard! I love this quote!
Anything that is of real value takes hard work, grit and determination.
In life we often place too little value on things that come easily to us and tend to take them for granted. We take for granted simple tasks like turning on a tap to get fresh water. Starting the ignition in a car to get you from A to B. Flicking a switch to access power.
Yet, things that are hard we place very high value on. We value sport athletes, musicians, inventors and celebrities. Gaining an higher education or rag to riches stories.
So if we know things we value and respect take work and sacrifice, why are we afraid of "hard work"
It's nothing new that success does take hard work. But do you know what else is hard if not harder?? Being overweight is hard. Working out is hard! Being stuck in a dead end job is hard. Being on prescribed medication is hard. Going to the doctors regularly is hard! Working on someone elses dream is hard. Being an unideal role model to your children is hard. Feeling body shame, inside and outside is hard. Being bigger than your excuses is HARD!! So, I'm telling you, you will be faced with struggles and hard times, it's a part of life. Choose your hard that benefits you and when you do, you are able to deal with your struggles in a controlled environment. Just because something is hard, doesn't mean you shouldn't act on it or do it.
You decide what it'll be...
The hard of success? OR
The hard of failure?
