Easy or Hard way?

In life most things come in either of these two ways. They can come from the easy way where you wanted it but you really didn't expect that you would get it and then there's the hard way where you would have to work hard and be patient for something to be given to you at the right time. Which way would you like the things you have to be got? The easy way or the hard way? How would you feel if you got such things? Will you be happy with whatever you got?

I know that there always is an easy way, however I always have to make it hard for myself (unconsciously). I sometimes don't even really see an easier way, and by doing this I pick the hard way too xD Well, I don't really mind that I take the hard road more often, it comes in easy from time to time (when you really have a difficult job to take care of)

WOW, Great. You are following a good way. But we may have to change the style from one case to another case.

Yea, it doesn't always come in handy^^ Sometimes taking the easy way would be a plus.

I try my best not to do things the hard way. Life is trying enough without giving yourself more obstacles to overcome. The easier the path, the happier you will be. We don't a;ways have the choice between hard and easy. When it is offered, take the easier way. Harder ways bring more trials.

Trials teaches you something and makes you strong. If every thing was easy and handed to you, there would be no purpose in life. I enjoy a trial once in awhile it keeps your brain working and you on your toes.

While we all would like life to be handed to us the easy way, it just don't happen for most. Most of us have to work for what we want. I have seen several children/adults that have been given the easy way of life, everything handed to them. They have no respect for anything, if it a toy, and they become upset, then bust it, don't matter I will get another one. The things we have to work for and save for, we protect because it was too hard getting it. These people also go along in life thinking that people owe them something, as a child it was all handed to me, so in adult life it should be too. They have no values in anything.

I would prefer the hard way to earn my money for a living.earning the hard way not leads to many advantages for example:- 1)It gives u physical training and you don't need the gym for exercising. 2)It also gains you a lot of reputation which you wont get by winning money by luck. 3)You also feel good that you finally got what you deserved.

By happy chance, most of the time I get things easily. But for the things I truly want I work hard for it. The harder it is the more the fruit of my labor tastes sweeter. I do find it that the harder the task to achieve, the more appreciative I am of its result. But that doesn't mean that I do not appreciate things that I could easily get. Sometimes we tend to take for granted those small things that comes our way easily, however, some of those small things are very significant for us. And sometimes, the things we try to get so hard are just trivial. So I try to keep an open eye and an open mind on what I get, either I get it through an easy or hard way. Have a happy day.

I prefer an open mind would do the trick.

I have always been a slow learner but once I get it then I get it. Then it surely stays in my system as long as I need it.I guess any easy way just comes when you underwent all the hardships first.But to fortunate ones who just naturally understands the logic in life easily,they probably don't value it as much as slow learners do.But that's their difficulty that they have to solve too.So in the end that's not an easy way all in all as well.They also have to learn the hard way to reverse this advantage turned into a weakness...

It is an universal truth that we can't be satisfied. So, whatever is easy to get may not like the process and whatever is difficult to get, give more attention to get it !

Either way works fine for me. It's all about the journey. Some things are worth the struggle you go through to get to the finish.

In the beginning of man's life, God provided humans for all the things on earth in easier way manner by just simply following gods commandments and orders. But unfortunately, Humans are just humans we tend to violet gods commandments which enable us to do much more difficult things than easier way that god wants for us.
