There’s a Les Brown saying…
“Do what is easy and your life will be hard. Do what is hard and your life will become easy.”
I LOVE IT—SO TRUE!
Based on most people’s measures, I should have an average life.
I come from a blue collar upbringing.
I didn’t excel in school.
I don’t stand out in a crowd.
BUT… As a result of working hard, honoring my word, and putting others first, I’ve done okay.
I’m also attracted to discomfort. To pain. To struggle.
I’m UNCOMFORTABLE with comfort. With ease. With coasting.
It makes me nervous because I KNOW that it leads to disaster.
So be skeptical when things are going well and be skeptical when things are not.
…Because seldom are things as they seem.
Especially when you broaden your time horizon.
Lazy people deserve what they get….
