Do You Choose Easy or Difficult?

Which do you choose?

Most of the time, in most cases, most people choose easy.

It’s easy to blame things on circumstances that are outside of our control.

It’s easy to say “it’s not my fault”.

It’s easy to play the victim.

Even when it’s not really true.

It’s difficult to step up to the mark.

It’s difficult to take responsibility.

It’s difficult to rise to the challenge of sorting things out yourself.

Sometimes things are outside of our control. Sometimes they aren’t. But either way you are the one who decides what you do from here on.

Accept this responsibility.

Then do something about it.
