Obstacles are not always under your control. You can only take responsibility on how you react and take control of the situation. Do not try to find solutions to every problem you face that can just be overcome by ignoring. This may seem scary to some, but what matters most is making things happen.

Focus on the Big Picture

Some obstacles might be more challenging than others. You might spend a lot of time at the obstacle, yet not find any breakthrough. So, start small. Make a conscious decision to try something outside of those limitations you have tried.  If you were told that you’d never be able to do something, try it anyway. Focus on the big picture, motivate yourself to work harder, smarter and to challenge yourself.

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with obstacles, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.
