If a person tells you he/she does not have anything to worry about, then that person is living an incomplete and purposeless life. In life, there is always an obstacle to overcome but the difference between a victor and a victim is the way they see the situation. There is always a problem to encounter before having progress. This is true in most instances around us.
Before flight can occur, gravity must be conquered.
Before you can be the first in a race, you have to overtake your opponents.
If you want to eat a food, you have to overcome the process of cooking, frying, boiling, heating, cooling and so on.
In other to succeed, you need to get past the obstacles in your path.
How do you see the obstacles around you. Do you see them as stepping stones or as stumbling stones?
If you believe you can, then you can
Nothing comes easy at all. A lot of people believe that obstacles in life are obstructions and are things they cannot overcome. Some people even pass through problems as they journey the road of success and at that point, they become helpless and start doing the needless instead of doing the needful. This can be illustrated with this example.
A man is driving his car to the office, he is supposed to resume at 8:00 AM. On his way to the office, his car brakes down, he looks at the time and the time is 7:40 AM, the next thing he could think of is pray for God to send him help. Praying is not a bad thing but the timing might be wrong. The best thing he could have done was either call a mechanic or take a cab and with that, he would have overcome his obstacles.
Life is filled with problems everywhere. Each problem is either seen as an adventure or as a limitation. You either decide to take each problem as they come every day and overcome them or you remain with one and allow it overcome you, giving the opportunity to another minor obstacle bring you down.
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store; For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task. I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.” ― Jessie B. Rittenhouse
