Overcoming Obstacles: How to achieve your goals in spite of negative circumstances
An obstacle is a thing that blocks one's way or prevents or hinders progress. If you do not address your obstacles head-on, you will fail to progress or have the life you truly want. Let me let you in on a secret: Just the fact that you are living right now, breathing this moment and have the ability to take action right now is all you need to overcome your obstacles.
Overcoming Obstacles Regardless of Your Situation
You see all of us have experienced challenges, setbacks, obstacles, tragedy, heartache, loneliness, depression, anxiety and much more. Surely you have already overcome something just to be here reading this text right now. You have met a challenge, and you have overcome an obstacle.
You need to acknowledge your win. You need to celebrate your triumphant victory. You see many times we don’t see ourselves properly, we don’t acknowledge our victories and conquests. We don’t give ourselves enough credit for the tenacity and determination we have consistently applied to keep moving through all of life’s circumstances. There are few incredible passages from the bible that state:
- You are more than a conqueror. (Romans 8:37)
- You were not given a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
- You are unique: before you were formed you were known (Jeremiah 1:5), and you were wonderfully made despite that circumstances that may have brought us to this world. (Psalm 139:14)
You are your best example to overcome your obstacles because you have exhibited victory over and over during your life. You were uniquely created to overcome all the challenges and obstacles you face.
No one else was made for the specific challenges you have and will encounter. And if by any chance you might be struggling against your very first obstacle in life, let this be an opportunity for you to know that you were created as a conqueror, lacking fear, with infinite power, love, and a sound mind.
And knowing these truths you can be confident that you will triumph and this will be the example you look to as you face future obstacles in your life.
Gratitude, Strength, Peace, Faith & Fortitude,
Tell yourself I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a result of my decisions. My desire for love, joy, purpose, and success is greater than the presence of fear!
