“If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great.”
- Tom Hanks
Today I bring to you another Tom Hanks quote, this guy is a favourite actor of mine, I loved him in movies such as The Green Mile, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan and a whole lot more.
Now this quote can be interpreted in different ways, I find it to be a quote to motivate you to push yourself. In my opinion it means that if you’ve accomplished something that wasn’t all that hard and that any average person could do, it’s good but it’s nothing great. If you had a ton of difficulty to accomplish something it makes it a whole lot greater and I’ve got the perfect example for this.
Imagine yourself as someone obese now you could go out and get surgery in order to make yourself lose all that weight, or you can take the difficult route where instead you workout daily, begin to eat healthy, start drinking water and etc. If you take the more difficult route in the end you’ll feel a whole lot more amazing, you’ll feel like you’ve actually accomplished something truly great in your life.
This quote is more meant for you to instead taking the easy way through life, sometimes try the more difficult way because in the long run you’ll accomplish more than what you were expecting too.
