What Can We Learn From Obstacle?

Overcoming obstacles

Post Written By Eugene Morgan

If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.— Frank A. Clark

We shouldn’t see obstacles as our nemesis but rather as a way to measure ourselves. Obstacles can tell us how we’re growing in our personal journey. We have all experienced obstacles in our own unique way. Obstacles aren’t meant for us to fail but are meant for us grow into what we want to be in our lives. Obstacles chip away the edges of our biases as long as we have a stick-to-it-ness attitude. It is easy to have the attitude in the classic Aesop’s Fables of the fox who couldn’t reach the grapes and only to give up by saying that those grapes were sour anyway.  Instead, we can have the attitude that we can learn something about ourselves about how we deal with obstacles, and about how we dealt with obstacles in the past. Our past is our resources of experiences up to now that we can use to fulfill our dreams and desires.
