Obstacles. Every One Wrangles With Them. It’s Part Of The Road To Success. In Anything.
We all face obstacles. Sometimes many times in one day. But it’s how we respond to them that makes a difference in our lives.
We’re all different. And we all have different thresholds for pain and suffering.
Success in anything. Whether it be sport. Business. Learning a new skill. A new craft. Or a trade. Is about how much pain and suffering we’re prepared to endure. To get to where we want to go.
What? And how much? Are we prepared to give up? To earn the right to live our dream.
We all have to give up something to get from A to Z.
If we want a career path. And we have children. We reconcile ourselves to the fact that we can’t be at a school assembly. On the same day that the law firm is considering us to become a partner.
We can’t go out carousing. When we have posting deadlines to meet with our website. That affect our revenue stream.
If we don’t put the work into learning a new skill. We can’t advance to the next level.
We can’t be good at anything. If we don’t put in the hours of work required to perfect whatever it is we want to achieve.
Every road that leads to living our dream is littered with obstacles. That need to be circumnavigated in order to reach the pot of gold at the end of our rainbow.
Not everyone has the tenacity. Or the will. Or the desire. To grab that brass ring. And run with it.
Some of us settle for less than we deserve.
And for some that’s OK. They know their limitations. And don’t complain about the decisions they’ve made to be where they are.
I know men who have conscientiously refused to climb the corporate ladder because they prefer to spend time with their growing family.
Others are just champing at the bit to be there at the top. And will endure anything to get there.
We can’t all be Queen Bees. Some of us have to be worker bees. Who keep the hive healthy. And alive.
The men and women who complain about their lot in life. That they’ve ‘been robbed’ of opportunities. Have no one to blame but themselves.
Opportunities are everywhere. For everyone.
We either step up to the plate and make things happen. Or we drift through life. Hoping something happens to us.
Those are two simple choices. One makes us. The other breaks us.
As a business woman. Jumping over. And crashing through. Obstacles. Is a part of my every day life. And you know what? I’m a tougher. More resilient. And a more compassionate gal. Because of them.
