“Easy choices, hard life.
Hard choices, easy life”
– Jerzy Gregorak
What’s the hardest thing you’ve chosen to do in the last week?
Not something you were forced to do, but CHOSE to do?
Maybe it was the workout from last Saturday? 🙂
When you’re in the middle of a really tough workout and your heart is pounding, your breathing is heavy, and your legs hurt…
You start to wonder
“Why am I doing this to myself?”
You could have stayed home and watched “The Good Place” on Netflix!
Or just went for a nice, leisurely walk instead.
But instead you came in and did an insanely tough workout that made you want to quit.
Secretly, you know why.
Even with all the weirdness going on right now….
You have to admit, you have a relatively comfortable life.
Of course you still have struggles, tragedy, and problems….
But you still have food, water, electricity, internet.
(For now, at least)
But what happens if you settle into that comfort?
Remember the time you got “comfortable” with your diet and put on 15 lbs?
Or that friend who was comfortable at work until the moment they got laid off?
Comfort is dangerous.
You don’t want comfort.
As painful as it sounds, you WANT to be uncomfortable.
You NEED it.
Humans are wired for struggle.
You are going to spend your energy fighting for or against something for your entire life.
But not all humans know an important secret…
You can CHOOSE your struggles!
Not all of them, of course.
Life is going to throw some struggles at you on its own.
They’re going to make life harder, more uncomfortable, and sometimes just sucky.
If you stand still, life can beat the hell out of you with a never-ending supply of struggle.
But when you choose your own things to struggle against…
And you make those things hard as f***.
You build your mind and body to handle the unexpected stuff life throws at you.
The sucky times are a little less sucky
“Big” problems don’t seem quite so big.
And the problems other people think are “hard” seem easy to you.
Cause you know how to handle discomfort.
By doing hard shit day after day
Week after week.
Hard choices, easy life
Go do some hard shit this week.
