I think that everything is in our minds. If you imagine that you can't do something or that this something is too hard for you, there's no way you'll accomplish the task you've set for yourself. If you convince yourself that you can do something and feel the feeling of accomplishing it, you'll motivate yourself and everything will go just like that.
Human mind can do anything, and if we learn how to use it to help us in every situation, we could do everything.
think and re-think about my problem all over again, but think again about what he says. but in general, I wouldn't just accept what he says 'it's easy' or 'it's hard'.. he's not standing in my shoes, does not facing my problem with 'my circumstances' (family, education, money, etc). that's why I think and re-think it again. but new POV sure helps... especially if it's my best friends. I know they'll help if I ask them. LOL...
... offer to let them do it themselves and feel quietly vindicated when they inevitably either fail or rush off in a panic. Or ask them what I'm doing wrong, which will usually have the above results, but sometimes can result in new, valuable techniques. Or tell them to shove it because this is the first time I've ever tried doing whatever it is. Or tell them to shove it because they're a smug git. It all depends on what I think I know and their attitude about what they think they know.
Lots of people seem to agree and interpret this as some kind of personal attack...even though no information was provided about the tone of the statement. I wonder if it says something about the general connotation of the word "easy". Maybe Geico should stop telling people "it's so easy even a caveman could do it"
