How to Make Shit Happen by Sean Whalen

We humans are programmed to take the easy path. The path of least resistance. So, when we face a challenge, or we are tasked with something difficult to do, we will make an excuse. We will get punched in the face then blame everyone and everything around us. Making that excuse is just as easy as CHOOSING to do the work and create a result. The choice itself is equal. The power and energy are the same if you say, ‘fuck it I’m not doing it,’ as opposed to, ‘fuck it let’s do this.’" - Sean Whalen
