“It’s not meant to be easy, but it certainly can be easier.”
I will admit that I am annoyed when people say things like
“When you love what you do you will never work a day in your life”
This implies that the journey is meant to be easy – that we aren’t on track if we are feeling challenged.
When you are on track you WILL be challenged. There are days you may wonder if you have lost your mind. Or if you are really ‘supposed’ to be on this path.
If you wait for it to be easy then your calling – your purpose – might just pass you by.
Now this doesn’t mean you need to work yourself to exhaustion – working 24/7. Trying to please everyone else. Trying to be something you are not. That will only fill your calendar and drain your soul.
There is a sweet spot in the middle of challenge and easy – this is where the magic happens if you are willing to do the work.
