“Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.” Og Mandino
The other day I had two flat tires before noon. It took me an hour to get to work after repairing the first one and within two hours the second one occurred. The interesting thing is that when I was walking down the stairs of my apartment I say “today will be a good day.” But instead, I immediately faced a small problem to start my day.
A wonderful life
Imagine if all we had to do was wish for a wonderful life and immediately that life would be revealed to us. How would your life be? No challenges to overcome, no obstacles to jump over, no way to demonstrate your abilities and what you are made of.
Obstacles are good
Embrace those obstacles that arrive into your world and give thanks to God or your higher lifeforce for the opportunity to use your skills to successfully overcome and conquer your situation. Those obstacles are good because they will reveal your resourcefulness to overcome them. They will show you skills that you didn’t even know were within you. You will grow as a person and even help others, through your triumph, be able to do the same.
Look at your challenges as opportunities to learn more about your resilience and validate what you can accomplish.
