We face the choice between easy and hard every day.

The more mature we are, the more choices we see.

However, maturity only helps us see the choices, only our willpower and determination can make us consistently choose the harder path.

The hard path is, well, hard. But, it is better. And, even if we start with the best of intentions, after a series of inevitable failures, it may feel like the effort is not worth it.

Until it is.
