Choosing The Difficult Path

on

It’s easy to rationalize, justify and excuse. That’s what our brain wants us to do. Our brain defaults to the simple, conserving our energy, not doing the difficult work. We can choose the easy path; deciding that “it happened long ago” or rationalize why we continue to associate with individuals, companies, and teams who might not be on a positive path. Or we can choose the difficult path. Come to terms with the choices we’ve made, the positions we’ve found ourselves in, maybe even the things we’ve done. If we don’t, we end up right back in the position we started in.

Whenever we are faced with a difficult situation, uncertainty, or stress, we generally go one of two ways. We stick to the status quo, take the path of least resistance and justify or blame others. Or, we choose to take on the challenge.

It’s time for all of us to ask the difficult questions, and change for the better. Whether it’s in sport, or just in life in general, choose the difficult path. Stop rationalizing. Stop excusing. Find your voice. Stand up for something. It’s during difficult times when we see what actions people are willing to take and that true character is revealed. Don’t cower away. Don’t take the easy path. Challenge is an opportunity. It’s a chance. I hope that we all take it.
