1962My stepfather said that to me because I was trying to do something and I kept whining about it," says JD Andrews, who travel blogs as the EarthXplorer.
"Another phrase he used to say was if it was easy, then anybody could do it. So it made me stop whining and try harder.
Of course I was unhappy the first time he said it to me, but I realised I could do it, and if he had said: Oh, why dont you just stop? then I never would have tried. It taught me that the more you try, the more you can do anything. So its a big deal in my life.
