In life, we have the choice to play on the level we want. The harder levels bring their own obstacles but the rewards tend to be of greater value to us.

Do we go for the easy win or challenge ourselves with the more difficult pursuits?

Which level we are choosing to play on is a useful question to ask ourselves often.
