It takes courage to face life. And to face your own life, to become who you were created to be, to live a peaceful life, to be successful, you must first recognize the obstacles on your path to success, to peace, to freedom.
Do not forget fear. Do not forget doubts.
Do not forget negative people. Do not walls.
Do not forget envy. Do not forget them. They are there. And you can do something about them.
To become you, to become yourself, you must first overcome the things that are pulling you back. If you cannot defeat them, then go over them. If you cannot go over them, then go under them. And if you cannot go under them, then you must go around them. Period.
Rmember that “Fortune belongs to the brave.” Do not forget that. To claim your own fortune, you must first overcome whatever it is that is holding you back. If not, you are not going anywhere. You must work really hard to overcome them. It is not going to be easy, but you can deliver.
According to Shunryu Suzuki, “… when you become you, yourself, … there is true self.”
You can free yourself. As James Allen once said, “He who will control himself will put an end to all his sufferings.” Do you have the courage to become yourself?
“Victory belongs to the most persevering.”- Napoleon 1 of France
There is strength in overcoming obstacles. We grow when we overcome obstacles. We do great things when we overcome obstacles. Whether we like it or not, if we want to grow , we must face our obstacles. We must defeat them. If not, we can’t move forward. According to Henry Ward Beecher, “Difficulties are God’s errands; and when we are sent upon them, we should esteem it a proof of God’s confidence,- as a compliment from God.”
“I attempt a difficult work; but there is no excellence without difficulty.”- Ovid
We don’t see problems as gifts. We see them as problems. Remember, when you focus on problems, you create more problems for yourself.
To change that, instead of focusing on your problems, why not focus on what you can do about your problems? To put it simply, why not focus on solutions? When you are faced with a difficult issue, do not run from it. Look at it, analyze it, and get to work. Do not think of a problem as a problem, but as an opportunity to grow. When you see something as a problem, it becomes a real problem. As Helen Keller once said, “You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere, and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.” Yes, there is power in overcoming obstacles. What do you think?
“Do not think of a problem as a problem, but as an opportunity to grow.”
