Everyone buys into the lie.
What lie you ask?
The lie that it has to be hard.
Success is hard.
Money is hard.
Building a business is hard.
Relationships are hard.
Life is hard.
And because we adopt that narrative, we self-sabbotage every step of the way to the goal. We sweat the small stuff. We procrastinate. We get caught up in things that are really none of our business and generally out of our control. We stress. We worry. We rinse. We repeat.
We create a cycle that edifies the internal dialogue, so we experience it over and over again because your ego refuses to be wrong. You won't betray your own core beliefs... If you decide its going to be hard, it absolutely will be!
But what if there was another way?
I'd like to offer up an alternative...
Its only hard if you think it is. Shocker. I know.
I have found that most things in life arent actually that hard. I am. I'm fighting myself 99% of the time. I'm in my own head. I'm talking myself out of things I'm afraid to face. I'm worrying about the wrong things at the wrong time. Its me. I am hard. So... Life reflects that right back.
Everything and everyone is you pushed out.
Yes, there will be challenges. But your "response ability" is full of choices. Thoughts become things so stop choosing thoughts that make it harder than it needs to be.
Example: I used to think launching courses needed to come with all this added stress and sleepless nights. Thats what "they" all say! Until one day in 2017 I decided I didn't want to do that. Ease and flow was also a choice. And it was way better! Quick shift. Different experience entirely.
Flip the script on yourself. Make it fun. Because yes...it all gets to be fun - if you decide thats what you want.
And when the going gets tough... Theres God's grace to fill in all the gaps I create (more on that tomorrow).
