“Don’t wish it was easier; wish you were better. 
Don’t wish for fewer problems; wish for more skills. 
Don’t wish for fewer challenges; wish for more wisdom. 
You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.”

“Don’t say, “If I could, I would.” 
Say instead, “If I can, I will.”

“Don’t join an easy crowd. You won’t grow. 
Go where the expectations and the demands to perform are high.”
— Jim Rohn

Isn’t it so easy to focus on the problems, what is wrong, to want to know why it is not working out and long for a time when these do not exist? I’ve been there and have thought that as well. Trouble is, it doesn’t help, does it? Nothing changes. All I saw was more problems, more challenges, and more frustration.

It reminds me of John Mayer’s very popular song, Waiting On The World To Change. Jim Rohn knows a better way: magnify your skills and become the best you can be.

Hanging around the easy crowd is nice, but it is a pleasant pastime at best. Better to hang around people who challenge you to think, to do, to improve, to be creative, to excel. These people will be so influential in your life–and so much more fun.
