Every day is a series of conflicts between the right way and the easy way. Each day you have a choice to take the easy way out, or get after whatever it is you want. Some days you're going to have to grind it out, struggle, push through, but you have to keep going. Taking the easy way out is exactly what it is. EASY!
That's not you. You push, you claw, you climb, ignoring the voices in your head to take that easy road.
