It’s Hard

I don’t usually just share someone else’s stuff, but I needed this one today and figure maybe someone else does too.

Andy Frisella sent me this email this morning, an important reminder.


No matter what it is you choose to do with your life…

It’s going to be hard.

Dedicating all your effort and energy into building the life you dream of is hard…

Settling for a life that’s far less than what you’re capable of is hard too.

Prioritizing your health and fitness is hard…

So is battling poor health and chronic illness.

Get it?

You can’t opt out of hard…

Everything is hard.

So instead of engineering your entire life around what’s going to be easiest…

Ask yourself this…

Would you rather pursue and live the life of your dreams?


Would you rather accept a life that is mediocre at best?

Because no matter which one you pick…

It’s going to come with its own unique challenges and obstacles.

Not choosing is a choice.
