Why is doing the best thing often the most difficult thing to do?
I suspect it’s because “the best” is transformative, and transformation calls for sacrifice, and sacrifice is difficult.
However, making a sacrifice does not necessarily need to be difficult. If one genuinely prioritizes what is best, then giving up things to achieve it will be a lot easier, if not a joy.
In the end, I’m discovering that our prioritization of values ultimately determines our actions and, conversely, our priorities are evident through our actions.
So when it comes time to sacrifice for the best, it will be a lot less difficult if we truly prioritize what is best.
