As a human, when you come out of your mother you must breathe. You’ve never had to do that before. I suspect the air going inside your mouth, throat and lungs is a colossally odd feeling. It’s shocking and certainly it’s a change, perhaps it hurts and one might say it is a HARD change. You must do it to live on this earth. You must Do a Hard Thing.
You’ll be expected to consume milk, formula, and/or other items, as well as, expel stuff from your intestines. That’s all very HARD stuff.
You’ll be required to Do Hard Things just to survive.
Those things above go from: hard, to required, to forgotten about by most of us. And that is the way it goes for the rest of our life. We either are required to Do Hard Things, and then after repetition we find them to be easy, or easier than the first time. When we voluntarily take on doing hard things, like climbing El Capitan, we are completely whipped, exhausted and swear off the doing the endeavor ever again. Something changes our mind and we try it again and we find our strength in physical prowess and mental skill to execute is improved, and climbing El Capitan is a bit easier than the time before. We top out almost elated at how we did something with some ease that was HARD for us previously.
That which is IMPOSSIPLE, often becomes Hard, and then we say I-am-possibe, only slightly different than impossible. Life is really all about taking on things that are Hard to do, and overcoming them, making them easier. We continue using past experience to make future hard things, not so hard.
Get out there and Do Hard Things! ( you don’t have a choice if you are on this planet reading this, so do it with a grin.)
