O is for Obstacles…
Life provides many opportunities but not without obstacles sprinkled in between. A lot of times we are quick to run when things get in the way of what we want. Immediate gratification causes some people to quit before they even try. “I want to be a chef but I don’t want to learn.” That’s not how things work. Imagine thinking you’ll be a bestselling author without even writing the first sentence of a manuscript or telling your story for someone else to write.
It is important that we look past the obstacles noticing the opportunities that lie ahead…nothing comes without effort. Walking comes after we’ve learned to crawl. A book appears after many steps. If you write a manuscript but it remains on your computer without you making effort to get it published, it won’t miraculously appear in a bookstore.
Bottom line… use obstacles as the footstool to your success… SLP~
(The possibility of me not having internet for a week starting Friday is an obstacle... LOL!)
