Be a Person That Handles Hard Well

This video featuring Kara Lawson, head coach of the Duke Women's Basketball team, has been on my mind lately. I love the truth of her words, and the encouragement and empowerment behind them.

We wait for things to get easier. It will never get easier...What happens is you become someone who handles hard stuff better.

Make yourself a person that handles hard well. Not someone that’s waiting for the easy. Because if you have a meaningful pursuit in life, it will never be easy.

So don’t get discouraged through this time if it’s hard...It’s supposed to be.

So make yourself someone that handles hard well, and then whatever comes at you, you’re going to be great.

Share this video with your student, or with anyone who needs a reminder that they can handle hard stuff.
