Rich substance

Don’t wish for things to be easy. Work to make things good
and meaningful.

A life of nothing but ease and comfort is a life not fully
lived. Sure, it’s good to be comfortable, yet it is
essential to also have real substance in your life.

If your goal is to reach the point where you have no
responsibilities, you will find that place to be highly
unsatisfying. Making a difference is what you do best, and
making a difference makes life good.

A life with no challenge is a life with no fulfillment.
Doing only what is easy can quickly rob you of your sense of

You cannot fully experience or appreciate life’s sweetness
if you completely avoid its sometimes-bitter realities. Some
of the world’s most beautiful places are also some of the
most difficult places to reach.

Do what it takes to get yourself to those beautiful places.
Be willing to embrace the difficult realities, and
experience the rich substance of a life fully lived.
