Well, let me tell you what the problem is.
Alright? Let me tell you what the problem is.
The problem is:
Everybody wants the prize, but nobody wants to pay the price.
Right? Everybody wants the prize, but nobody’s willing to pay the price.
Nobody’s willing to put in the work.
Nobody’s willing to make the sacrifice.
Nobody’s willing to eat their own shit, you know?
To make it happen.
Everybody’s expecting it to be easy. I was just giving a talk the other day at school and someone said,
“Well, why would I choose that way? That’s much harder.”
“That way’s a lot harder. Why would I choose that direction?”
And I was like, “Man, why are we talking about hard versus easy?”
“Nobody said this was gonna be easy.”
We don’t want it to be easy.
If it was easy, then everybody would be doing it. Right?
If it wasn’t difficult then everybody would be doing it.
Everybody will be an entrepreneur.
Everybody would be a billionaire.
Everybody would be a successful athlete, or artist, or businessman, or salesperson, or scientist.
Everybody would be doing it. Right?
It’s not supposed to be easy.
You shouldn’t want it to be easy.
But if you have a dream, if you have a mission, if you have a passion, this shit is not gonna be easy.
Easy shouldn’t even be in the conversation or in your vocabulary.
This is supposed to be hard.
You should want it to be hard because then no one can replicate what you create.
Anything of value and of meaning is not gonna be easy…
And that’s how it’s supposed to be.
