The easy way is not always the best way. Oftentimes, it is quite the opposite. This simple quote reminds us to keep swimming upstream and achieve our goals even with opposition. Whether your opposition is another person, a long journey, or a demonstration of skills, when you chose the difficult path it will probably be worth it.
If it is too easy, you may want to ask yourself if you could be aiming higher. If you embark on a challenge that is not easy, you may dread the hard work that is to come. But, you can rest assure that it will all be worth it in the end.
