The Darkside of Easy

I was having a lively conversation with a friend a couple of weeks ago. He was looking at some rather big challenges in his path and lamenting how tough things were. My friend’s situation is filled with obstacles and I can certainly understand his wishing for time to have it easy and coast for a bit.

The more we talked the clearer it became to him that easy times have been, for him, a lack of growth, advancement, and accelerated success. Not that we shouldn’t take a pause and enjoy what we have accomplished, but ultimately we grow when we get to rise to the occasion and expand our capacity.

My friend has a new perspective on his situation and more energy to leverage his challenges for his success and happiness.

Have a great day,
