In our lives we discover there are always doubters.
These people believe that because they didn’t, or couldn’t do it, it’s not possible.
The reason they say these things are they tried and gave up on what they wanted.
They saw it ahead of them, but just before they got there it became too hard. They gave up because their will to be someone better wasn’t stronger than being satisfied with the life they had.
Along your journey through life, you’ll meet a lot of these doubters, and they’ll have good stories, but they always end in, “I couldn’t do it anymore”, and that statement is what makes us different from those who, “couldn’t do it anymore.”
They thought because they were near the end, or what they perceived to be the end, it would get easier.
Has life ever gotten easier when you were trying to do something difficult?
Have you ever sat and thought, “Climbing this mountain is going to be easier than the training?” Why do you think that is?
The training prepared you for getting to that mountain, tasting that cold air, feeling that snow on your face and the rocks under your feet. It never did the work for you, it was only practice.
That’s what every moment of your life has been up to the point where you believe you can do great things, practice.
Sure, you’ll deal with difficulties again, but they’ll be easier than the ones when you started.
If you ever think what you’re doing is easy, you’re doing the wrong things and not trying hard enough.
Living the life you want will be difficult, but it will be worth the moments of staying up late, of staying at the gym late, of trying to improve your life.
Each and every moment of your life until you reach your goal is practice, but once you get there, you’ll need to work harder to stay where you’re at, not because it gets easier, but because once you get there, you’ll never want to leave that life again.
