Obstacles In Your Way

Posted by: | Comments (2)

It’s bound to happen.

As you travel along your entrepreneurial path, occasionally (or not so occasionally) you’re going to hit bumps in the road, massive trees fallen across the only way through, scary animals and strange sounds during the night, and section which seem almost un-passable.

In short, there are going to be things that make you want to quit, run home to the cozy comfort of your living room sofa, a blanket and your favorite funny sitcom (anyone have some ice cream? I’ll settle for chocolate chip cookies?).

Trust me, I speak from experience.

If you decide not to retreat, you’ll find that you are far stronger than you may have expected. You’ll find that you have resources, ideas, support and energy you had no clue were in your reserves.

And, if you decide you WILL find a way, then you will. Period.

The funny thing is, often times, it’s not even that hard. What looks like a brick wall, a huge monstrosity, once you decide you’ll scale it, go around it, learn to jump high enough or, if required, use a stick to scrape at it until you make a hole and then make it big enough to squeeze through, even if it takes you 10 years (basically, you’ll do whatever it takes) turns out to be just a really photo-realistic image on paper, so all you have to do is rip through and you’ll be on your way.

Perhaps it’s just me… it’s an odd paradox, but something I’ve found to be true over and over. You make a decision and the way seems to yield.

Where are you seeing an obstacle that feels just too big, too hard to traverse? Reach out and ask a friend or a coach for some support – chances are it looks like a boulder, but if you shift the lighting just right, you’ll see it’s actually a staircase carved into the rock… :- )
