What good are obstacles? Think about it..
Obstacles are always looked at as being something we have to overcome; we all have to deal with it and we have to figure something out to get around, over, under… however, OVER them.
But are obstacles good?
Yeah, I think so. I think obstacles are great! Honestly, I think most of what we consider to be an “obstacle” isn’t really an obstacle at all. I think what we refrain to as an obstacle at times, is really something that is just going to take some getting used to; or you have to get over or you have to accomplish it, right?
It’s interesting to me… we keep using that word “obstacles” as if it’s a bad thing. But I think an obstacle is something you have to get around or get over… it can even be considered as a learning curve or an experience in which you will grow stronger, more resilient through. When did “obstacle” become such a negative word? So is it really an obstacle or something that just happens? Something that goes wrong or something else you have to get through, get over, or get under. I think it’s all in the mindset and in how you look at it.
But why do we call them obstacles?
Obstacles are something you’re dodging on a mud runners course. It’s impossible to not have things come up or something happen in life, but is what you’re facing really an obstacle that you’re overcoming or is it just living life a lot of the time?
