Life Is Hard. Deal With It.

Life isn’t easy. Accept that single fact and move on. ~Chad Howse

If you want to do something of value and be someone of value you have to come to the understanding that life isn’t easy. It hasn’t been easy for anyone, at least anyone wanting to leave a fingerprint on the planet before they leave.

Your days shouldn’t be easy, otherwise you’re not doing the things you need to do.

Even the simple things like keeping a clean house and a tidy yard. Working. Working harder today than you did yesterday. Learning. Training your body. Acquiring and developing toughness and grit.

All good things require work and they ask us to do things that we don’t necessarily want to do. (Read This: Wish Less. Work More.)

Life is tougher for some than others, we can all agree with that. And that’s just the way it is and the way it will always be.

The key is, within your own life, accepting that life is hard and it can be brutal at times. It can bring you to your knees. It seems to throw a shit storm your way at the worst possible moment.

Bad things happen and to think that they won’t even when you’re on top of the world is to be unprepared.

Accept that life isn’t easy. It’s the first step to making it GOOD.

From that launching point you’re willing to do more work and endure more hardship.

Winners in life persist. Losers quit.

To think that life will at any point be easy is to set yourself up to quit and whine and wish things were different.

Don’t fall into that trap.
