When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
Have you faced any adversity lately?
Every good thing you want to do in life is sure to be opposed by someone or something.
That’s the genius of the airplane. It uses the force of whatever works against it as wind for the take-off.
We can do the same.
- Gravity makes situps hard to do… but pushing against that force makes you stronger
- Running takes grit and determination, but pushing through the urge to quit pays off in the end
- Getting to the gym can seem like a hassle at first, but once you work to build the habit, it’s hard to imagine how people get by without regular exercise
Once we learn that lesson — once we KNOW how to leverage the power of opposition to make us stronger, we’ve secured a primary key to success in life.
Roadturn Principle: What would happen if you really tried?
No more excuses.
