Chapter 4, Page 10, Book 18


Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

Henry Ford

Yahoo!  You always have other options...

There will always be obstacles to clear in the path of life, it’s the joy and journey of clearing those obstacles that makes life rich and gives people the good feeling of accomplishment. 

I think that some of the biggest obstacles we face are often those we create in our own minds.   Sometimes we become our biggest obstacle, allowing fears and self doubt to stand in our way.  

Every time we are faced with an obstacle on the road, we all have a choice.  We can do nothing and grumble or take action and clear the way.  There is always and will be other options.  It’s our choice.  It’s a matter of mind over matter.


Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals.  Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.

Marsha Sinetar

So true! I've always been my own worst naysayer and fear-monger.
Perhaps it's just laziness, but I enjoy discovering other options ..... even if it means taking the long way around the bend. Sometimes the scenery's delightful!
