The Only Hack I Know

Of course life is difficult sometimes. That’s one of the great truths: life is difficult.

Humans are funny though. We aren’t logical, and we don’t follow many paths that are set before us. We determine our own meaning for success, then follow it the best we can. (And that’s different for many people)

The fun part is knocking our own illogical selves sideways for a positive outcome.

The next time life gets difficult, say to yourself “This is easy.”

The magic happens when we expand on that. “This is so easy, I eat problems like this for breakfast!” And keep going. It sounds corny, but it has helped me in the past and I hope it helps you.

“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult.
