All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.
It’s not hard to make things easy, all we have to do is follow a few rules. If it is not yours, do not take it. If it isn’t right, don’t do it. If that’s not true, don’t say it. If you don’t know, shut up.
The first paragraph is an example of some easy ways to live, but there are easy ways to die. Puff a cigarette daily and you will die 10 years early. Drink alcohol daily and you will die 30 years early. Love someone who doesn’t love you back and you will die daily.
Those things are your personal demons among others, but they should be afraid of you. It’s simple, you are their home, their food, and as you heal, their executioner. That should be easy to understand.
“Ideals are easy. Ideas are common. Everybody has ideas. But, ideas are also highly overvalued.”
What separates the pro from the amateur isn’t money, success or talent. It’s the mindset. The execution of ideas is all that matters, and that’s not easy. Just like everybody has a story to tell. All you have to do is write it. But, that’s not easy either.
It’s easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging those responsibilities, like it’s easy to make promises, the thing is its hard to keep them. It’s easy to hate, but difficult to love. In other words, all good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
For some reason it’s always easy to blame others, but our successes or failures fall on no one but us. It’s our responsibility; this alone is not easy. Just like anyone can become angry. The thing is to be angry with the right person at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way. This is not within everyone’s power, so that makes it harder than ever.
Most of us think it is easy to be safe, especially when we are at home, but think of it this way. A ship is always safe on shore, but that is not what it was built for.
It’s easy to think just when we think we have found our way in life, it changes, but there is always room for improvement, and that’s within your own self. Just remember, the man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty, has wasted thirty years of his life. That is not easy to know, in fact it is very sad and a great waste of time.
In life, the hard way is to learn or discover something through personal experience, especially that which is difficult, painful, or unpleasant.
The easy way is to extricate yourself from a difficult situation is by choosing a course of action, offering the least effort, worry, or inconvenience, even though a more honorable alternative may exist.
It’s Something to Think about!
