Do Hard Things

Yesterday Adam asked Dallin, "Why are you doing that?"
Dallin replied, "I like to do hard things because I get better at them and then I get to like them more."
It stopped me in my tracks.  Yes!  I love that attitude!  Granted, Dallin and Adam were talking about a video game but still.

I'm a firm believer in the value of doing hard things.  When you have to stretch, take a risk, look silly even, that's when you learn.  Just like our muscles get stronger when we do resistance training, we get stronger when we have to work at it.  We gain skills and confidence and we feel empowered to take on life's challenges.  These are things I want for my children.  So go get 'em, kids.  Tackle those hard things in life.  You can do it!
