[This is a cartoon I drew while reading Seth Godin’s “What To Do When It’s Your Turn”.]
This was originally a line that came out my my first book, “Ignore Everybody”, but I thought it was highly relevant to Seth’s message in “What To Do When It’s Your Turn”.
Anything worth doing is going to be painful.
This explains why we go to such great lengths to avoid it. It’s much easier to just go shopping, watch TV, hang out on the beach.
The only trouble with that idea is, we really aren’t born to live that way.
We are born to strive. And striving has a price.
And the moment you can accept this, really accept this, you become free in a way most people simply are not.
Yes, it’s scary. But if you really had any choice in the matter, you wouldn’t have read this far.
