facing obstacles

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off of your goals” – Henry Ford

This is one of my favourite quotes of all time. I like it because I know from personal experience that most people give up on a goal or a dream when they run into obstacles. I was reminded of this quote recently when I saw this picture:

Mouse Maze


When I saw this picture, it reminded me of all the times that I faced obstacles when trying to achieve a dream or a goal. I started reflecting on my past accomplishments and looking at the way I handled the obstacles. You know what I realized? On the BIG accomplishments, I know I faced obstacles that seemed insurmountable at the time…however, when I think back on it, I don’t remember the obstacles really. I only remember the accomplishments. Come to think of it, the accomplishments of goals wouldn’t even be as fulfilling WITHOUT the obstacles. The obstacles are what weeds out those who really don’t have a strong enough desire to reach their goals. The obstacles are what determines who DESERVES to reach their goals. I have always heard the statement that if you want something bad enough, you will find a way to get it. I can attest to this through my own history. The things that I wanted badly enough are the things that accomplished. The things that I didn’t have a big enough desire for are the things that dropped by the wayside when I faced obstacles.

If you want something badly enough, you need to make a conscious decision to face the obstacles with a complete determination to break through them.
