If you are like me, you’ve been there before. Having all of the best intentions, or maybe you even already have a laser like focus and then you are hit with a major obstacle that is keeping you from accomplishing your goal. Now you find yourself faced with a decision, do you succomb to the obstacle and be like most other people in the world or do you press on until you have overcome?
Here is one of my favorite Michael Jordan quotes on the matter:
“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.”
Want to achieve greater success than the average person? We have to learn to internalize that quote. When you hit a wall, it can’t stop you, it can’t hold you back. You need to think of it as simply a bigger step in your stairway to success. Take that big step however you can and keep moving forward. Remember one of the main reasons people succeed is their unwillingness to give up, no matter what.
