Daily Dose of Coach: #389: The Greatest Burden

“Courage atrophies from lack of use." -Anonymous-

There's a story of a wealthy young man who inherited all wealth, gifts, and comforts life could give. He had even hired an older statesman to mentor him so that he could maintain this comfort for the rest of his life.

One day, as he sat drinking fine wines, eating grapes and speaking philosophy, he asked the elder, "What's life's heaviest burden?"

His response, "Having nothing to carry."

We spend way too much time trying finding ways to ease our life. Instead, look for a good fight. Problems introduce you to who you are.

As the great Jim Rohn said, "Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better. Don't wish for fewer problems, wish for more skills. Don't wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom."
