Ok so we all do this…when talking with someone, looking back on the path we had to take for results, we’ll say, “It wasn’t that bad.”
Because in the end it was worth it AND we’ve adjusted to the new habits so they feel easier.
But I guarantee many of us to start did some whining about how sucky or hard or confusing the process was.
Because, guess what?
Change IS hard.
Reaching a goal we’ve never reached is OVERWHELMING AND TOUGH.
The learning process sucks.
It’s not fun to not be good at something.
But even the master was once a beginner.
It’s funny though how we start to dislike the discomfort of learning, of feeling out of our element more and more as we get older.
We believe there are things we are slightly entitled to….that shouldn’t be tough.
But if we haven’t learned the way to do something previously, it isn’t going to be easy and we are going to mess up.
Think back to being a kid…I don’t know about you but there were plenty of times I whined about things being hard.
And 99% of the time I was told, yes? Things are hard. But learning how to do them makes it easier!
So if you’re feeling overwhelmed right now with making a change, if you’re feeling frustrated by things being hard?
Well, maybe it’s time to tell yourself to suck it up buttercup and recognize that new can be difficult.
But by practicing and working through it and LEARNING, it gets easier!
Because the path to success means you have to go through the hard to get the result.
Sorry you can’t dodge that learning process.
