Nobody's life is always smooth sailing or without any bumps here and there at all. In actual fact, obstacles are part of our life and more often than not, these hurdles of ours will lead us to unbelievable opportunities. We have to remember that not all obstacles are created to be equal; Having said so-not all the stumbling blocks are bad. Truth is-an opportunity's favourite disguise is an obstacle. When you are heading towards your answers, rest assured that you will be meeting countless obstacles again and again.
Our life is full of maze
Remember that nobody has gained immunity not to face any problem in their life. Have you ever seen a mighty lion in the vast expanse of his kingdom? Even he has to fight off flies which are too pesky. Know that being a diligent person does not automatically remove you from the problems that are so common in our world. A change of perspective will actually let you know that these roadblocks are there to teach you how to live more productively and victoriously. Thomas Carlyle said it best, "The block of granite that was an obstacle in the pathway of the weak becomes a stepping stone in the pathway of the strong." So it all depends on how you look at it.
It is all about how your view your "problems".
Adversity has its advantages
Those who are constantly being "defeated" by obstacles, here's a good news for you. In the midst of all the trials and tribulations, there is room for you to grow and of course promotion to let you "upgrade" yourself. Each challenge that is wearing you down offers you an opportunity to grow and not die. There is no doubt that obstacles can temporarily detour you, but only YOU can make YOU stop! In other words, only you can defeat yourself. Though the struggles we face might be lasting, but they will never be everlasting. Every problem that emerges is only there temporarily, we are the ones who choose to make it permanent.
The difference between iron and steel is fire,
and the fire-tried steel is worth it.
Like I have mentioned earlier adversity has its advantages. Obstacles will reveal your beliefs and who your really are. No matter how cloudy it is when the plane takes off, above the clouds the sun will always shine brightly. So look up! Our life will be more productive if we understand that the obstacles that appear right before us are a part of our life. We have to face the music if we want to lead the band one day right? So our problems are actually our opportunities. :)
Every mountain top is within reach if you keep climbing.
