Pick The Hard Way Over Shortcuts

August 16, 2021

Having everything at our fingertips, from food and clothes to education and socialization, we are training ourselves to become uncomfortable with challenges of all sorts to such a degree as to prefer shortcuts and quick fixes to hardship and struggle even when knowing that the path of least resistance will not get us to our destination.

Without shortcuts to our dreams, we decide that the journey is not worth the effort, and we end up with lives that relate more to tourist destinations than to reality, where only the experiences without commitment and sacrifice matter.

Cutting corners with life hacks teaches us that everything that is hard has to be somehow wrong and we rob ourselves of one of the main things that shape boys into men: Hardship. Have the courage to choose the hard and difficult paths in life, without cutting corners, and build your character in your trials.

Nothing worthwhile will ever come without effort and for free.

If it's stupid and works is it stupid to begin with?

The universe is hard enough on life, you don't need to make things harder for yourself just because.

This is useless advice. Save your backs and your time.

I think you missed the whole point of the post.
If you read the post completely, you will see that it specifically refers to avoiding the hard and difficult ways in favor of shortcuts even when knowing that the shortcuts will not bring the desired results.

It doesn't say to choose hard things when it is not necessary. It says not to avoid hardship when hardship is necessary.
All the best to you!

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
