Taking the Paths of Greatest Resistance
The best things in life are found on the other side of pain, suffering, and your greatest fears. Such "things" are often hard-fought for; and, quite fortunately, they're also pretty difficult to lose or walk away from.
If you want to succeed in life, take the path of greatest resistance by doing what you don't feel like doing and always doing so. To quote Les Brown, "If you do only what's hard, life will be easy. If you do only what's easy, life will be hard."
What path are you on in this moment? If it's fraught with pain and difficulty, I'd say you're probably exactly where you need to be and doing exactly what you need to be doing. If it's comfortable and easy to navigate, I'd say you probably need to rethink your life.
Chose the hard road, my friends. The road with heart. You'll thank me later. Probably not tomorrow or even next year. But in twenty years? Yeah, you'll be so glad you read this (even though you probably won't remember me or this post), took it to heart, and began putting it into practice.
