~Norman Vincent Peale, American author of The Power of Positive Thinking
Find a new way to see obstacles. They can be our greatest ally. They can be our greatest teachers. They can be the challenge that we need to reawaken the joy in our hearts, forcing our imagination to come to life again. Many of the greatest thinkers of our time made the greatest discoveries because their obstacles required them to come up with solutions that catapulted their ideas further. We, too, can use obstacles as tools to inspire new directions in our life. When we stand up to our obstacles, we bring a revitalized enthusiasm because we have surpassed something we initially believed was unsurpassable. When we face our blocks and see them for what they are, we muster the strength to face whatever life throws our way. When we experience something stopping us in our tracks, we become very grateful for the message that the challenge will teach us. When we overcome these obstacles, we will discover a renewed will and determination. We will fully appreciate the euphoric aroma of a life well lived, a life in which our spirits run carefree, souls forever young. And we will recognize that these obstacles did not have half the strength we once believed they had. When we face our obstacles as they arise, we must ask—”Teacher, what is my lesson here?” Take the time to listen as the answers come; they are the universe speaking to us, helping us to follow the path that will best serve us.
