I love this expression. I heard it at a conference I attended with our franchisees by our keynote speaker. The speaker participates regularly in triathlons, marathons, iron man style races. I have to say that I admire anyone that can put their body through that kind of rigorous, disciplined exercise regularly once, and then keep doing it after that.

My uncle competes in these kinds of races, he was actually invited to Switzerland after finishing in the top of his class on a transrockies race. Five days of mountain biking solid. Once and a while I go for a run with him or ride through the back woods in Canada and I’m once again reminded that age has little to do with how fit your are.

In business, success comes at a price. It takes HARD work, determination, focus, and a little bit of luck. My experience has been that luck follows those who exhibit the other characteristics.

So to answer the question, what’s wrong with hard? Nothing, if it was easy it wouldn’t be any fun.
