Where can you find the difference between easy and hard?
Most people look for that difference in the problem. Really successful people look for it in their heads.
Just a short while ago my daughter asserted her displeasure about adult life. “Papa, you go to school, then you go to college, then you get a job, you work, and then you die.” Wow! Where in the world did this come from? Then an opportunity came up for her to work over the summer as an administrative assistant. She was really not all that enthused about the prospect of working for a fair wage because of her preconceived notion. Finally her first day came and went by and she was delighted about the prospect of work. In fact she was grinning from ear to ear. She was very upbeat and proud about all the documents she scanned, computers and work station as well as communication cables that she helped set up or clean. She outright enjoyed working for and with people too. What a difference, huh?
Where did the difference between easy and hard reside here? In her head and only in her head. Friends, here is where you can make a huge difference for yourself: Make sure to take a deep breath and really think about any problem and ponder how tough it really is. It is almost always first and foremost an issue that your brain wants to make out of it.
