O is for Obstacles
“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal” -Henry Ford-
If everyone is overcoming obstacles, the question becomes, what kind of obstacles do you want to overcome?
Obstacles that are put in our path to make us stronger. They are a whisper from the versions of ourselves saying – ‘hey, over here, keep going,this way’
Obstacles are the Universe asking ‘how bad do you want it.’
Then, purposefully setting up obstacles designed to male us stretch and grow.
Obstacles allow us to fail forward so we can determine what we want and what we don’t.
If we run into an obstacle and we decide to quit the thing we’re chasing because of the obstacles; the truth is that we didn’t really want it in the first place. Which is a great awareness to have because we can move on to what we really want faster.
However, if we push past the obstacle, that is when we adapt.
Additionally, pushing through obstacles is how we know we are going down the right path..
We all have obstacles that we must face. That’s a part of life. The more projects, money or responsibility we have, the more obstacles we will face.
Just remember that obstacles are signals of what we truly want.
