Choose your hard.
Being fifty pounds overweight is hard. Running 10 miles a week and giving up pizza and ice cream is hard.
Living paycheck to paycheck is hard. Budgeting and keeping an eye on what you spend is hard.
Feeling distracted because you’re always on social media is hard. Overcoming the feeling of FOMO and deleting Twitter and Snapchat is hard.
Working a job that you despise is hard. Quitting that job and starting a business is hard.
Contrary to common belief, life isn’t a series of easy versus hard decisions. Every decision that we make is hard to a certain degree. Fortunately, some hards are better than others in terms of value, purpose and fulfillment.
And, while everything is hard, you have the choice to choose your hard.
We just need to decide what that hard is going to be.
