Obstacles are not always what they seem, they can actually be things that help you move forward, teach you something new or change your direction. I choose to write about obstacles today because I feel that I have now become an obstacle leaping champion this past year. To me, it seemed as soon as the path was clear and I was nearing the finish line, an obstacle would pop up and challenge me. Years ago in the past, I might have let them deter me, discourage me or stop me in my tracks. Today, I take a running leap at them and soar over them, growing and adjusting as I jump. I began to see the good in obstacles and how important they are to our personal growth.
First, if there were no obstacles live would be the same, no good, no bad, no extremes. Just being. When we go after what we want and take a chance on ourselves and our dreams, we will indeed be challenged. In fact, if there are no challenges, perhaps you are not pushing yourself out of your comfort zone enough. Outside of the comfort zone is where change and life happens. Lets discuss 5 reasons that obstacles are good.
The next time you are faced with an obstacle, instead of getting upset, stop and say thank you. Thank you for challenging me so that I can be stronger, better, learn what I need to learn to follow my dream, vision or path. Thank you for teaching me what I did not know, how strong I really am and how much I really want it. Thank you Obstacle.
