Sometimes some of the biggest and deepest truths are the simplest. I've had one on my mind lately... important things are hard.
We all have those things that we want to do. We want to be successful entrepreneurs, we want to be thinner, or we want to be richer... you get the idea.
I was on Facebook and friend posted something to the extent of "Do you want to be thinner without putting in all the work?" And instantly everyone said YES, YES, YES. Well it's all a lie. Losing weight and being thinner isn't something that you can do without making sacrifices. It may mean not eating that ice cream that everyone else is.
I want to have more time to read by myself in the quiet. That meant I had to get up earlier and forgo sleep. There are days that it's REALLY hard. I have force myself out of bed but I'm always glad that I do.
I want to get back into writing more often. That means I'm going to have to set aside time to write more often. That means I'm going to have to not do something else.
It's almost like we're trained to try and look for shortcuts. We want to be lazy. By cheating the process, you're gonna not get where you want.
