You’re at a family reunion and walking down the buffet with your closest relative. You reach for a dish and she says, don’t eat that it’s disgusting. You respect her judgment and quickly move onto another dish.
This story creates a good analogy for the ‘Pain is Unnecessary’ lesson.
By associating pain to the project, task, exercise or meal, the individual is less likely to enter into the effort with the right mindset of accomplishment.
Pain does not have to be a part of creation. Hard work, struggle, sacrifice, toil, and suffering do not have to be a part of the equation that leads to achievement. If fact, when you add pain to the ingredients what you find is a meal that is disgusting.
