What to Do When You Hit an Obstacle

What to Do When You Hit an Obstacle


“If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.” –Latin Proverb


So you’re going through life floating merrily along and then BOOM, you hit an obstacle.


Obstacles are just there for you to prove how much you want something. A lot of people give up when the journey gets tough, but that’s when you have to buckle down and get to work and try even harder.

Usually when you hit some kind of roadblock, you have to go through it rather than around it. (Of course if there’s an easy solution then that’s good, but I’m assuming you’ve hit something challenging). Sometimes the challenge is emotional and internal, and sometimes it’s other people or outside forces.

If you’re rejected, for example, try to accomplish your goals another way, try again, or find another way. Get creative. There’s more than one way to get to the same end point.

If the challenge is coming from within, work on your mindset and beliefs. Read something inspiring and motivational every day until you start to believe in yourself. Watch Rocky or Mulan! Do what it takes to get through this emotional slump and get back on track.

Don’t let a little obstacle stop you from following your dreams. Keep going and never give up.
