I always have an issue with this every so often. If I take the easy route I am hurting myself; when the truth is most of the time I over complicate things. Expect easy, anticipate challenge and work hard. It sounds easy right? Well it is! That is my key; I like easy things I think most people do as well. That does not mean you should not challenge yourself? No of course not, it just means find the easiest way to reach your goal. We are challenged all the time, so as long as you can find a way to alleviate some pressure, without sacrificing the desired result. DO IT! Slow and steady win the race; as long as there is progress. The biggest thing to remember is that everything that is hard will become easy. If something is a continuous struggle, then an aspect changed or you are doing something wrong.
