I just discovered the secret to how to make anything easy.  I don’t care how big, how hard, how challenging, how impossible something may feel.  Just follow this simple formula, and you will guaranteed make anything easy.

Here, I’ll give you an example.

A few months ago, I got it into my head that I wanted to start running. (Don’t ask me why, just happened.)  I’ve never been a runner, and the very idea of running even 50 feet, let alone a mile or more seemed daunting and near impossible.

However, I found a program ap for my phone that would guide me through it step by step.

The first time out was the easiest of the two month program, but for me it was still a challenge having not been a runner my whole life.  I barely made it through and it took me a long time to recover.

The same went for the second workout.

But I stayed with it, and each time I moved to the next stage, there was more challenge and it was harder and I would be on my last gasp.  I was on this for about three weeks when I came to a workout that literally wiped me out.  Then my schedule got crazy and it became harder to run and easier to pass it up.

Finally, a month later I decided to get back on track and start over.  I had taken over a month off and I knew I was not at the level I had built myself up to, and at the same time I was afraid (and convinced) that I would have to start all over.

So I did.

And wouldn’t you know, that first run was a piece of cake.  Same with the second one.  It was easy.  that same routine that wiped me out two months before, I did again with ease.

And that’s the secret.  If something is hard and difficult and challenging, go back to the beginning and do it again.  You’ll be amazed at just how strong you’ve really grown, how much you’ve learned, and how far you’ve come.

Go ahead try it.  And then try it again.  It’ll be easy.
