We Are Designed to do Hard Things!
I’m a very optimistic person, always have been! Sometimes I’m a bit more positive than other times but I try to be upbeat and happy in my life. I’m sure there are plenty of people that will say “Gosh, you just can’t be this upbeat and positive all the freaking time” and they are right! I don’t know that I can be all the time.
What I do know is there are no shortcuts to any place worth going. If you want a horse that is in tip top shape, on his game that you can ride flawlessly…you better be ready to WORK! You can put a horse on a walker all day long, but that won’t help YOU become a better rider. It won’t help you connect to him. It takes time and it takes work and you can’t “skip this step” to move up to the next one. You can try it, but you will always have to come back at some point and do that step you skipped. It may not be today, or tomorrow but someday you will.
If you wanna lose weight and be fit and healthy, you can’t hire a personal trainer and never show up. Doesn’t work that way. You can’t buy all the healthy food and never eat it. Nope, won’t work. You can’t outsource it, you can’t pay someone to do it for you. YOU HAVE TO DO THE WORK.
I’ve heard this a lot of times in my life from people that really want to accomplish something but that is about as far as it goes, they’ll say….. “but it’s soooo hard.”
Here is a little tip that I have found out to be true……….we are designed to do hard things.
Yep, we are.
The journey is full of obstacles. That is why it is called a journey. The definition for journey is: traveling from one place to another, usually taking a rather long time.
It is the journey that teaches you the lessons, that makes you tough and that will turn you in to a goal crusher. You can’t skip the journey, you can’t bypass the road to the top. Success lies in the JOURNEY.
Do you know what lies on the other side of the journey? Happiness. Accomplishment. Elation. Excitement. Pride.
So why would you want to skip the journey? I know I wouldn’t. The reward is too great!
So remember this, you are designed to do hard things. Get out there and crush it!
