Anything Hard Makes You Better, Whether You Beat It or Not - Mike Malatesta - Owner Shift Coaching

Butch was an amazing man. One of the best there ever was, in my book.

As my business partner, Butch would often say about hard work “You may not beat it, but if you run away, it will always beat you.”

He was raised on a farm. Working hard was in his DNA.

It’s just what he did, and he took joy in it.

We got ourselves into a ton of messes. Dirty messes. Hard messes. Messes most people would runaway from.

Butch taught me to jump into messes. To embrace the work that accompanied them. The harder the better.

Because running away from hard things is easy – anyone can run away.

Tackling hard things is hard – and anything hard makes you better, whether you beat it or not.

– Mike
