It’s Not Supposed To Get Any Easier. 

Life is tough. Relentlessly tough.
Financial pressures, unrealistic expectations from work, family needs, and personal challenges test your resolve daily.

It’s unrelenting pressure. Pressure that will  break you if you don’t have the right perspective.

The truth about life is that it’s not supposed to get any easier.

All those 7 step programs to an instantaneously easier life just don’t work. Those get rich quick tactics you heard from your friend or saw on the internet are a hoax.

You’re telling yourself a lie when you expect you can do something and life will automatically become easier.

It’s not supposed to get any easier. You’re supposed to get stronger.

You’re supposed to develop a stronger will.

That’s what winners do. They don’t whine and complain about life being unfair. They don’t let other people’s small-minded thinking break their determination and drain their spirit.

Winners don’t expect to achieve success because they are hoping the contest will got easier.

They expect to win because they are unrelenting in developing the right muscles and mindset to overcoming the obstacles they expect to be in their way.

That’s true no matter what challenges you are facing.

It’s not going to get easier. It’s not. You want it to, but deep in your soul you already know that this challenge you are facing is your proving ground.

This is your gymnasium. Your gladiatorial arena. Your opportunity to rise from the dust of conquest with the steeled resolve of a warrior unwilling to give up.

Don’t pray for peace. Pray for strength. Don’t beg for mercy. Beg for another chance to battle

Develop the toughness to win no matter what the odds look like.

  1. I’ve got a personal motto that this really makes me connect here. ‘Embrace the suck’, you have to expect every day to suck, because when you keep on the grind despite the suck, eventually you pull yourself out of it. You automatically stay humble, but when you have a good day and a victory, it really stands out.

    1. Love the quote — “embrace the suck”. It’s so true that your perspective determines how hard you try.
      When you expect success to be a set of guaranteed steps or expect success to be easy you end up demoralized and gasping for air.

      1. I cannot recall how I came across you site, but I am glad I did. I have been reading your blog for about a year now and you help me reenforce certain ideas about life that somtimes tend to slip. It has taken me many years to get to where I am today and I am enjoying to the journey.

  2. I also believe that will can be developed like muscles. I started with changing habits and focusing on really important things.

    1. That’s right. Will is a muscle. I agree with you. If you don’t work on developing more of those muscles they grow weak and fragile.

      Just like you brush your teeth each day, you need to work on developing more will.
