How many times have you thought about doing something but given up because it’s too hard? You felt like it’s too complex; it’s hard work; it’s difficult; you’re too inexperienced. When in fact, you haven’t even tried. If you have, well then, you haven’t tried hard enough.
There are so many ideas I wish to execute and bring to life. But when it comes to actually starting, sitting down, prioritising, and fully focusing on it and bringing it to life, I get stuck - and I hate it!
I know that we don’t learn everything at school and only through experiences we would know how to do something. So we just have to do it.
After spending days trying to learn something on my own and still feeling confused that I sometimes feel like giving up, I decided to talk to my Dad about it.
Dad, it’s so hard. I’m still trying to figure out how to do it. It’s so complex. ** frowny face **
Yes, but it’s not as hard as learning how to play the piano.
As simple as that…
That one short sentence was like a wake-up call.
It’s true. So many things in life are hard but they are not as hard as acquiring those skills you possess - the skills you spent years learning in your earlier years.
Whether it be the changing your diet, getting into an exercise routine, changing your habit, starting a new business, learning how to do something, remember that even though the thing you’re trying to learn or change seems hard, it’s not as hard as the skill you spent years to acquire earlier in your life - be it how to play tennis, the guitar, do graphic design, build a website, or obtain a degree.
You’ve just got to try harder.
