Chapter 5, Page 16, Book 19

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

Henry Ford

May 16th - nobody said it would be easy

Life is full of obstacles. Don’t let yourself be one of them.

Author Unknown

Life can be like an obstacle course.  All sorts of challenges set before us and hurdles to overcome.  We are constantly presented with obstacles to find our way around before we can achieve our goals. 

No matter how large they may be  or how long it takes, we have to keep trying to get closer to the finish line. That’s life.  We can’t give up in the face of difficulty.  

One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.

Albert Schweitzer

Some see obstacles as a puzzle to solve.  Som see them as an opportunity to grow.  Others see them as meaning they cannot succeed. Our view of the barriers to achieving our goals affects how we react.  They can keep us from trying.  

Nobody ever said life would be easy, they just said it would be worth it. It all depends on how we react to what happens.  Nothing will work unless we do.  

If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesnt lead anywhere.

Frank A. Clark

You quoted Anon again with this wise statement:
Life is full of obstacles. Don’t let yourself be one of them.........

I had never thought of it that way but then I began to think of the many people I have known that with their attitudes DID become obstacles to others.

I want to be the one YOU talked about that see the obstacle as a puzzle to figure out or something to learn from.
Good entry lady!

I agree to find a way to work around your obstacles without letting them define you and without letting them stop you at your goal. Pretty much ever obstacle has a way around it if we keep searching for it and never give up in our pursuit of our goals.

Uh-huh, "Old Blue Eyes" said it, too!
"I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race." That's life!


you have to confront the obstacles you face head on. "Life is full of obstacles. Don’t let yourself be one of them."
