Good day, gentleman.
Something funny that I’ve noticed is that a lot of people who I read; Danger and Play, Bold and Determined, etc. They all say you need to put in “hard work” to get where you want to be. That’s where I differ from them. It’s never hard work, never. It’s a chess game. The manual labor job that I work 30 hours a week puts money in my account and pays for my business. Done. That means that I’ve got time to brainstorm ideas while carrying heavy objects and performing mundane tasks. Dealing with Family? Done. I’ve dealt with it my whole life, why stop now. Lifting heavy weight in the gym? Done, and twice on Sunday’s. I love lifting. I’ll admit that it can be difficult to lift the weight physically but it’s never difficult mentally. The work is never hard, it’s just work. You are doing things that you need to do in order to get you closer to your goals, carving out your future through blood sweat and tears. They are current necessities that will be unimportant and inconsequential in a year’s time.
What makes work hard?
The singular thing that makes work hard is your mindset. If you’re stuck in your head and are dreading whatever task you think will be hard then it will be hard. It doesn’t matter if you think climbing the stairs will be hard or that climbing Mount Everest will be hard. Tell me, do you think even a single person that climbed to the summit of Mount Everest went into the climb convinced that they would fail? No, because when you do a climb that daunting, you either prepare for success; you condition, you strength train, you work on cardio, or you don’t climb the fucking mountain in the first place. It’s that simple.
Building a billion dollar enterprise can be the easiest thing in the world. Similarly, getting a minimum wage job can be the hardest and most impossible task to ever have been created. It’s all about mindset. It will never be anything different. Every obstacle in life you create in your mind. You hold the power, gentleman: Use it.
Build a fucking empire, and then when someone says “well it couldn’t of been easy” make sure you’re able to respond with “actually, it was the easiest thing I’ve done.”
