So many people start there sentences with, “It’s hard”. My response is often a kind of sigh/hands on face gesture.
The thing is, I often catching myself saying this. And I really have to just give myself little slap and say, ‘Stop being a little whiny wet flannel’.
Mate… Life is hard. Things are hard. If they weren’t everyone would be doing them.
The key to overcoming adversity and breaking through the ‘it’s hard’ barrier is to take the challenge, stand up, and flipping do it.
The mantras of ‘it’s hard’, and ‘I don’t know’; mental self chatter to this degree reinforce and affirm your fears. They take you further away from your goal.
Support yourself! Why wouldn’t someone turn his own self chatter into a supportive mechanism?! …Because you can! It’s just a matter of conditioning you to empower yourself. Check out my post on incantations if you want to take your fear and turn it into a strength.
As a man that I admired once told me, when I was mucking about and procrastinating out of fear:
“Why not? you’ve got nothing to lose mate…”
