What’s your initial response when you’re confronted with a difficult situation or a tough task? If you’re like most people, you responded with heaviness (it’s so hard) and negativity (it’s so tedious and troublesome), accompanied with a sigh and a groan.
Yet, approaching something difficult doesn’t have to be that way. It’s certainly not that way when we are little kids. It’s a tough task for a 1-year-old to start to walk. He cautiously puts one foot in front of the other, attempts to balance himself and frequently falls.
Does he then give up? Does he think in his little baby language, ‘this is too hard for me; I can’t do this’?
