Turn away from easy

Be wary of easy. Easy can steal your life away without you even realizing it.

What is easy and free is shallow and meaningless. You deserve more than that.

You deserve the experience of pushing with everything you have against tough challenges. You deserve the satisfaction of putting your skill and resourcefulness to use.

It’s easy to sit for hours and be entertained by images on a screen. But you owe yourself more than a passive, secondhand experience of life.

What costs you nothing in time or effort brings you nothing in the way of fulfillment. Turn away from easy and seek to invest yourself in meaningful living.

Life’s richness is found out beyond those things that are easy. Do the work, make the commitment, and fulfill the great potential that is your life.
