Everything is Hard Before it is Easy ~ Goethe

One of my teachers, Brian Johnson, shared this the other day and it reminds me to accept the hard stuff. It is working through the hard that makes it easy. Think about it.

When you were a kid, it was hard to learn:

  • How to walk
  • How to tie your shoes
  • To Swim

Then there was school, and it was hard to:

  • Do math
  • Learn to write
  • Make friends

Then you got into business, and it was hard to:

  • Make a decision on your own
  • Hire your first employee
  • Balance the books
  • Provide feedback to an employee

And then through practice, repetition, and learning, it got easier. Like Jim Rohn used to say, “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better”. By getting better, the hard gets easier and then you get to scale up to the next level. What hard thing are you putting off? Check out the resources at
