No, it really isn’t.
Whenever athletes of mine whine, grouse or complain that a particular workout, technique or drill is hard, my comment is always,
“Why would we ever want you to do something that was easy?”
Business author Seth Godin echoed this in his recent post:
That’s the work that’s worth doing.
And by the way, the athlete was “whining” was really just wanting affirmation that yes, this is hard, and yes, I did it and, aren’t I pretty awesome for doing this thing that is so hard?
