 “Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them, they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.” – Orison Swett Marden

Overcoming Obstacles


We all run into our share of obstacles as we make our way along the path to success.

We might not be able to control what happens to us, but we can sure control our response to it.

I’m not talking about “thinking positively.” That’s not the answer. I’m talking about perception and what we choose to focus on.

Highly successful people perceive the world in a different way than other people.


The good news is…

We are not born with our perception of our world. It’s learned and it can be modified if we wish. How we view the world and respond to it is within our ability to control.

The next time you’re faced with an obstacle, instead of feeling blocked or discouraged try this:

Step back from it and look at it from all angles. Ask yourself questions like:

  • What can I do to overcome this?
  • What’s actually good about this situation that isn’t readily apparent?
  • What can I do differently so as not to be blocked like this again?

What we ask ourselves when faced with a challenge can have a major effect on creating the outcome we desire.

If you’d like to learn more about the power of changing your perception (along with how to do it), here’s a great book I came upon at a bookstore a few weeks ago. It’s by Kathryn D. Cramer and it’s called: Change the Way You See Everything Through Asset-Based Thinking.
