"When things are difficult, don't wish it to be easier, wish for more skills."
When Things Get Hard
Guess what? Life is hard. It’s inevitable. There’s no way around the obstacles.
So, what good is it going to do to wish that things were easier?
Instead of wishing that things were easier, start asking yourself “How can I develop my skillset to be better?”
How many times have you or someone you know said, “I can’t wait until this is over.” Too many times to count I bet.
Flip it to, “If I'm up against this obstacle, how would I be better prepared for it? What can I learn or study to be better equipped for this obstacle? What can be the positive of this negative?”
Block out time each morning for personal development. Identify what you need to be reading and listening to in order to improve with your craft. Not on Monday… RIGHT NOW.
It’s just like Ben Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
Find Your Solution
Start evaluating what you need to work on. Double down.
Find podcasts, audiobooks, books, and mentors that know more than you know. Those 20-30 minutes of daily personal development add up quick.
And the best part? It’s 100% up to you whether you put in the time and effort. It completely rests on your shoulders. What are you going to do? That’s the test.
It’s like when people leave high school, right? Many people think that education stops there, but that’s the very beginning.
