I recently saw a post online that said we should stop asking for easy. It intrigued me because 2016 was a particularly challenging year for me.
Here is an excerpt of it:
Everybody wants the prize but nobody is willing to pay the price. Nobody is willing to put in the work. Nobody is willing to make the sacrifice. Everybody expects it to be easy. Nobody said it would be easy. We don’t want it to be easy. If it was easy, then everybody would be doing it. Everybody would be an entrepreneur, everybody would be a millionaire. Everybody would be a successful athlete, or artist, or businessman, or salesperson, or scientist. If you have a dream, if you have a mission, if you have a passion, it’s not going to be easy. Easy shouldn’t even be in the conversation or in your vocabulary. This is supposed to be hard. You should want it to be hard because then no-one can replicate what you create. Anything of value and of meaning is not going to be easy. And that’s how it’s supposed to be.
That is super challenging, isn’t it? I think it’s perfectly natural to want things to be easy. It’s our initial response to want to choose the easier option and to shy away from things that are difficult.
But as you can see from the excerpt of the post, we shouldn’t want it to be easy. As we go back to work or school, let’s keep this at the forefront of our minds. Here’s a few things to consider:
- Worthwhile is never easy – Anything worth having or achieving will not come easily. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
- You are limitless – The truth is, God chose you to accomplish great things and with His help, the sky’s the limit on what you can achieve.
Just because it isn’t easy, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it.
The next time you feel like it’s too difficult, push through that. After all, you can accomplish anything with God’s help. So stop asking for easy.
We all need God’s help to accomplish what He has called us to do. to find out more about a real relationship with Him, click on the link below or on the pop up banner.
