“If you rest, you rust.” — Helen Hayes
We often talk about doing all kinds of crazy shit — climb mountains, run marathons, skydive, start businesses, travel the world, write books, record albums, make movies, the list is endless. Just think about what’s on your bucket list for a second. Now, can I ask you one thing? Why haven’t you done those things?
The answer almost always comes down to this: It’s hard.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but life is SUPPOSED to be hard!
That’s probably the most valuable lesson I’ve learned. Don’t shy away from hard things. Instead, train yourself to become a person that can endure difficulties. Physically and mentally.
The cliché is 100 percent true: No strain, no gain. If you don’t strain your muscles, they get weak. If you don’t strain your brain, your cognitive ability will decline. If you don’t test your character, you become spineless.
