“There are no problems; only opportunities for improvement.”
In life, there’re no shortages of obstacles. Whenever we meet one, we are presented with a choice. Do we run away? Do we climb over it? Do we go around it? Or do we use it to our advantage?
What’s really stopping us from doing the things that we want to do? Is it the obstacles? Or is it ourselves?
In one of my earlier posts (“Are you Dreaming?”), I wrote about how we begin to lose the ability to dream as we grow older. A dear friend of mine, James (@JamesBlute), commented that one of the reasons for this “is because we are taught later in life to conform to certain rules and perceptions on what life should look like.”
As we grow older, we begin to add more responsibilities upon our shoulders. Do we allow these responsibilities to weigh us down till they ultimately form a prison about us? Or do we allow these responsibilities to push us to achieve more?
You don’t have to allow common perceptions to decide what you live by. If you agree with it, adopt it. If you don’t, why should you accept it? Is it because everyone else is doing it?
The truth is; we always have a choice. And knowing this is the first step to making the right choice for you.
The next time you come to an obstacle, tell yourself that you have an opportunity to make the most out of the obstacle. Whether or not you make use of that opportunity, now that’s your choice.
Please do leave a comment on the problems that you have encountered that deter you from pursuing your dreams~ I’d love to hear from you!
What’s your problem? What’s your choice?
