It’s amazing to me how many people declare a goal, envision themselves basking in success at their finish line, and as soon as it gets a little hard after they’ve started… THEY THROW UP THE WHITE FLAG!
As someone who has both succeeded and failed at various goals in life… allow me to share a little wisdom that you can take to the bank.
NO CROSS TO BEAR… NO VICTORY!
In other words… if you expect to be successful at any worthy goal… best believe there will be some obstacles in your way. Many people equate obstacles to road bumps on the street, rainy days, or hurdles in a race.
But allow me to introduce a new perspective. When you’re striving for your goal, and you come up on an obstacle… IT MEANS YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT PATH!
Because I know one thing to be true…
People who have no goals or ambitions in life… will eventually run into trouble! People who strive to improve themselves through goals and ambitions… will eventually run into obstacles.
Making the wrong choices will lead to trouble… making the right choices will eventually lead to obstacles.
So if you have a cross to bear, again… CONGRATULATIONS!
BECAUSE SOME TROUBLE YOU CANNOT GET OUT OF…
BUT YOU CAN OVERCOME ANY OBSTACLE.
YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT PATH!
