Monday Mottoes – #94

obstacleObstacles in life occur to most all of us. We have a dream or destination in mind and everything and everyone conspires against our arriving there. Doesn’t it seem like that some days?

It’s been said, “I can’t seem to win for losing.”

So to fight back against any defeatist thoughts, we keep in mind that a detour is simply a delay and not an utter disaster. If you have determination (and a good bit else) on your side, it might be sooner, it might be later, but it will surely come to pass. You’re going to get there, even if you need to tweak your approach or strategy.

Which brings us to today’s motto:obstacles3

“Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.” ~Norman Vincent Peale

An obstacle can resemble an obstinate child, not that any of us have any experience with that…. You have to challenge and resist the situation. Just because the circumstance is giving you trouble, it doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it.

obstacles in lifeToday, target exactly what stands between you and that dream. If you had any means at your disposal, what would you do about the obstacle? Would it solve your problem? Now consider another perspective. And another.

Whether you go around the problem, over the issue, or skirt the side of it, soon that issue will be in your rear-view mirror. You will have left it in the dust and be speeding to your destination.

Happy Monday, everyone!
