IF YOU WANT SUCCESS, YOU WILL DEFINITELY ATTRACT OBSTACLES. EVERY OBSTACLE SHOULD BE LOOKED AT POSITIVELY. OBSTACLES ARE NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO NEW PATHS. YOU ARE GREATER THAN YOUR OBSTACLES. BE AGILE.
Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
~ Michael Jordan
How you deal with obstacles shows three things about you..1. How strong your faith is (belief) and 2. How prepared you are (plan) and 3. If your guidance system is in place (mindset). Obstacles should be looked at positively. Obstacles are new opportunities to new paths with less resistance. I call this your “Adinkra guidance system”. You can go with it or against it. This guidance system applies to anything in life. It’s simply finding the path of least resistance by using a possibility thinking mindset. It’s how the turtle wins the race, takes his and her time to decide his or her path very carefully along the way. A new challenge/obstacle should be treated with a pause and deep thought, not frustration and knee jerk reactions. It’s the time to get creative and be excited how to not only go around it, but how it will likely separate yourself from any competition. When the average person is faced with enough obstacles they will begin to lose their mojo and eventually reach a point and simply quit. You are not an average person, you need to work on a new mindset that will free your stress and sharpen your thoughts, and make the road to success a whole lot more fun. Yes, you will need to put the long hours in and work, but most importantly to work smart – not just hard! It’s a simple concept, but takes quite a bit of practice to fully embrace it. Consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
~ Booker T. Washington
