Easier or challenging road: Which one will you choose?

Everyone wants things to be easy in life.  We want smooth rides, with no traffic, and no red lights.  I hear students at Rutgers discussing which courses are easier and which ones are harder  They say, "Is Calc 3 easier than Calc 1."  What's an easier major Psychology or Biology?

Relationships can work the same way.  Wouldn't it be easier if we didn't make that phone call or send that email to a friend to remind them of how we care about them.  Wouldn't it be easier if people came to us and we didn't go after them?  Wouldn't it be great if people apologized if they wronged us?  It would help us move on from the hurt we experience.

Yet, these are the issues that we encounter in life.  Do we take the easy road and skip taking that "difficult" course?  Alternatively, do we challenge ourselves making the extra effort to do the best thing that we get us what we want?  Will we make the effort to reach out to a friend who may or may not be in need, or will we wait for them to come to us?

Sometimes there is NO easy way out in life and you have to fight for what you ultimately want out of life.

Here's a video that highlights this human struggle:
