Overcoming Obstacles

Obstacles (Obstacles)Do you have obstacles in your life that seem impossible to overcome?  If so, are you letting these obstacles control you?  I recently heard a news story about obstacles and how we’re more likely to veer off course if we’re focusing on them. If you have ever driven through a construction zone, I’m guessing you have experienced this when trying to avoid the cones, barrels, or barrier wall.  I don’t know about you, but I find that I have to force myself to focus on the road and what’s ahead of me to keep from looking at the obstacles.

So, I would encourage you to think about what you are focusing on.  Do you have obstacles that are keeping you from achieving your goals/dreams?  Maybe you’re afraid that you aren’t good enough or that you might fail.  My question to you is…how will you know unless you try?  If there is something that you would really love to do or achieve I would encourage you to look beyond your obstacles…or fears and go for it. 

For instance, I remember when I used to run relay sprints in high school track, one of the main lessons we learned was to keep our focus on our end goal and NOT look back.  Even when the relay baton was being handed over to us, we were supposed to keep looking forward because looking back would slow us down and give our competitors the edge.  Therefore, I encourage you to set your focus on achieving your goal and DON’T look back!  Remember the key is FOCUS!  So, dream big and keep your eyes on your goal. :)
