Life is hard. You don’t need me to tell you that. In fact, some of you may be thinking that it’s the understatement of the year! But I think this is a good thing. Life is hard when you live hard. You work hard, you mom hard, you love hard. And you wouldn’t have it any other way because by living hard, you create meaning and purpose. Success doesn’t just simply happen — unless you live hard and make it happen.
Living hard is all about defining your “why”. It’s not about how you make it happen, or what you do to make it happen, it’s about why you make it happen.
Why do you get up in the morning?
Why do you push forward when you fail?
Why do you do what you do?
If you’re looking for your why, your purpose, try living hard!
