The Path from Simple to Easy
There is a profound difference, and perhaps light years, between simple and easy.
I'll show you.
A young adult is on a plane preparing for their first ever skydiving jump. They have trained. They are ready. Now comes the moment of truth.
The instructor opens the plane's door. He announces they are nearing the jump area. All the student has to do is take one step. One little step. Simple, they have been walking for over twenty years. One step is nothing. It's simple.
But, it's not easy. Even though the would-be skydiver has anticipated this moment, the rush of the wind, the splendor of seeing the scenery unfold, the elation of feeling like your flying.
The step is simple, but not easy. It takes every ounce of mental strength that young skydiver can muster to take that step.
Flash forward a few years and the now experienced skydiver is about to embark on their 100th jump. The simple is now easy. The few stomach butterflies just add to the thrill. The anticipation now centers on practicing new and difficult maneuvers.
The path from simple to easy is mindset and experience. Mindset first, that is what gets you out the door. Experience, because every win builds confidence. The obstacles simply serve to add more tools to the toolbox.
Believe you can. Believe you will fly. Believe you will land. Now jump!
All the best.
