Here’s what I found out about the present generation and this is what I want them to aspire about. They actually tend to search for shortcuts to success and if at all they fail to find those shortcuts, they just fall into the pool of depression! That’s actually ridiculous, isn’t it? Well, I would like to cite a decent speech which was going on in my mind.
Many take a move and after hitting an obstacle, they end their journey! Here’s what it looks like.
Hard vs Easy
With that being said, here’s what it looks like for people who always shun the hard path.
And this is what I confess…
Everybody wants the prize but nobody wants to pay the price!
Right? Everybody wants the damn prize but no ones willing to pay the price!
Well, Nobody is willing to put in the work!
Nobody is willing to sacrifice!
Nobody is willing to … just eat their shit, you know?
To make it happen…
Everybody is expecting it to be easy!
I was just giving a talk the other day at my college and someone said,
“Well, why would I choose that way? That’s much harder!”
“That way is a lot harder. Why would I choose that direction?”
And man I was like, “Man, why are we talking about hard versus easy? Nobody said this was gonna be easy!”
Actually, we don’t want it to be easy!
If it was easy, then everyone would be doing it. Right?
If it wasn’t difficult, then everyone would be doing it!
Every person would be an Entrepreneur!
Everybody would be a billionaire!
Everybody would be a successful athlete, or an artist, or businessman, or salesperson, or scientist!
Success depends on your positivity!
Everyone would be doing it. Right?
It’s not at all assumed to be a cakewalk!
You shouldn’t want it to be easy!
Yet, if you have a dream, if you have a mission, if you have a passion, this shit is not at all gonna be easy!
Easy shouldn’t even be in the conversation or in your vocabulary!
This is hell yes supposed to be hard!
And you should want it to be hard because then no one can replicate what you create!
Anything’s of value and of meaning is not at all gonna be that easy!
And yes, that’s how it’s supposed to be!
And that was what running through my mind all the week. I somehow got it on paper from my thoughts and read to myself and found it really helpful! Sometimes, we ourselves get flabbergasted by the work we do, just like the coders think.
Hardwork beats Harvard!
