Our culture teaches us from an early age, that life is hard. Struggle makes you strong, gives you a purpose, something to do. Yet resisting ease and being attached to struggle causes so many a great deal of stress, worry, and pain. The real problem is you can’t have a great life in struggle. You can build a great business in struggle. What’s important to know is that in many cases this difficulty and struggle is totally self-induced and unnecessary.
The addiction to struggle single handedly prevents people from living a life of peace. It runs deep within me, and many others that I know. It starts to become a part of us, and in some ways it gives us purpose. What if we started to own the aspects of our lives that are easy to us? Better yet, what if we expect things to get easier than they already are? Imagine the time and energy and peace of mind we can get back if we simply let go of our attachment to the struggle.
You can begin to identify as the person that good things happen to. You can create solutions and build something great when you’re outside of the struggle. Today I’m sharing with you what happened when I shifted my mindset from “life is hard” to “life is easy”, and how you can do the same.
