The Broken Egg Theory

I think grit is a fundamental resource to survive. I have this theory called the “broken egg theory.”
If you help a chicken break out of its egg, it will die. You cannot use a silver spoon crack the egg. The chick has to get its heart rate high enough by itself otherwise it dies.


I think this is true in life too. People who grow up without struggle never experience the joy of cracking the egg.

They go on, cracking the egg, live on a sort of constant life support, never establishing the deep independence and happiness that they could truly achieve. 
I call it the broken-egg theory.

Sounds weird, I guess, but I always appreciate grit in people. I have deep appreciation for people who have had to crack their own egg and develop grit in the process.

Even those with silver spoons, suffer in the end.
