I'm trying to recall a saying I recently read. It was about motivation and went something like this: "Don't complain about how complex something is, but wish you were smarter."

Does someone know what the saying is?


Got it, thanks to my google search history!

“Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better.” - Jim Rohn

Love that one.

  • Ah, an antonym for "I'd rather be lucky than good" – candied_orange Nov 30 '15 at 21:24

I can't be sure it's the same saying you're thinking of but your description reminds of something we used to say when people push on a door that is clearly labeled with the word "pull":

You have to be smarter than the door.
