  1. A fun visual analogy of consciousness. You are the painting, representing the outer world but inside.

  2. Life becomes easier by doing hard things.
  3. Meaning: you learn from hard experiences which makes everything else life throws at you after that easier. You learn things about the outer world as well as about yourself.
  4. Example: While working a difficult job as a manager you get to know yourself better, your strengths and weaknesses. Your time management of yourself and that of your team improves. → This makes it easier for you to take care of any future scenarios involving similar skills — such as having a family or working in teams.
