Growing up, I had amazing Sunday school teachers and youth leaders. They were great role models, and many of my beliefs are rooted in the things they taught me. One mantra has particularly stuck with me and has helped shape my perspective on life: "We do hard things."
Simple idea, right? However, when faced with difficult experiences—good or bad—it reminds me that we do hard things every day. Some days a particular aspect of my business is giving me trouble. Some days I struggle with balancing my life and priorities. Some days it's hard just to get out of bed. Whatever my hard thing, I can take comfort and motivation in knowing that I can—and will continue —to do hard things every day.
