It's so much easier to make excuses than it is to knuckle down and get work done. It's so much easier to point fingers and blame everyone else rather than to take ownership for your life and your decisions. It's so much easier to be reactive than it is to be proactive and plan out every step of the way. It's so much easier to stay comfortable than it is to face the unknown. It's so much easier to keep a closed mind and to not adapt than it is to keep an open mind and constantly evolve. It's so much easier to stay in bed in the morning than it is to wake up early. It's so much easier to watch t.v., play video games, and play games on your phone than it is to read, or learn a new skill. Its so much easier to live paycheck to paycheck and buy expensive things, go out to fancy dinners, and max out your credit cards than it is to save, invest, and be frugal. It's so much easier to pay someone for their skill than it is to learn the skill on your own. It's so much easier to eat like crap than it is to eat healthy. It's so much easier to stay at a job that you hate than it is to go through the process of updating your resume, go on interviews, or get additional training. Its so much easier to ignore the person than it is to address them face to face. It's so much easier to go to the doctor and get a pill than it is to eat right, exercise, get the proper amount of sleep, and look for alternative forms of medicine. The only issue with this type of mentality is the fact that life isn't designed to be easy. If you do things the easy way all of the time, life becomes difficult. If you do things the right way, can you imagine the possibilities?
