He continues: “Art is hard. Selling is hard. Writing is hard. Making a difference is hard.”
Some other things that are hard:
Taking ownership of your situation, no matter how dire.
Being intellectually courageous and confronting the ideas that scare you.
Making change before the pain of your circumstances compels you too.
Seeing life as an opportunity, not a burden.
All these things are hard. But try them consistently and you begin to realise something:
The hard gets easier if you do it every single day.
