“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.”
