Why It's So Easy To Succeed

This thought keeps popping up in my head: It's so easy to succeed because it's so easy to fail.

Meaning it's so easy to just give in and have that junk food. It's so easy to just say, "Forget it, I'll go to the gym tomorrow." It's so easy to just have a greasy and fatty meal.

Most people give in. They can't say no to themselves. They can't resist.

But who is in control here?

The problem, though, is this attitude of giving in and being easy on ourselves is contagious. It spreads like wildfire to other aspects of our life.

"Well, I'll just hand in my project at work...it is what it is."

"Ahhh, I'll stop studying now. I'll pass the test."

There's a million examples in which going that extra few inches makes all of the difference. We face that choice of going that extra inch (or not) every single day.

Here's an experiment:

Raise your hand in the air.

Now raise it one inch higher.

See what happens when we're pushed? We can always try a little harder. We can always be pushed a little more.

It's that inch, that extra effort, that makes all of the difference.

It's so easy to succeed because it's so easy to fail. It's so easy to just give up. It's so easy to just stop running when your legs hurt. It's so easy to just say, "YESSS! I want that junk food!"

But when we're hard on ourselves, life is easier.

And it's the hard that makes it great. It's the hard that brings us the satisfaction and fulfillment and sense of accomplishment.

That = joy.

And if it was easy everyone would do it. But nothing worth doing is easy. Because if everyone could do it, it wouldn't be valuable. Scarcity = valuable.

Go that extra inch today. Push yourself a little bit harder. Say NO to something you'd usually say YES to.

That inch is where all the joy is in.

Enjoy it.
