Dark Obstacle Monster

The same obstacle monster  tries to bully me, sometimes. 
  I needed “reinforcements” too, just like everyone.
don't be afraid
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. ~Henry Ford 

Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today. ~Robert H. Schuller 

Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them. ~Orison Swett Marden 

Life's up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals - Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want. ~Marsha Sinetar 

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 when you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight. ~Orison Swett Marden 

Victories in life come through our ability to work around and over the obstacles that cross our path. We grow stronger as we climb our own mountains. ~Marvin J. Ashton

Be Still and Know that I Am God. ~Psalm 46:10

don't let this obstacle run your life. Ignore the so called shadow and finish what you have started.

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal." ~Henry Ford

This is one of my favorite quote, we need to look ahead and focus on our goal or we will be bombarded with small stuff which will hinder us from achieving or even getting nearer to our goal.

Very well said. We shouldn't let these obstacles get the best of us. ^_^

Obstacles -- these are things that don't stay for long.. given a little push and shove.. Just believe that you will overcome things, and these will turn out for the better. :)

Teresa Martinez said...

Obstacles in life should not stop us from pursuing our goals.

here is another one you should consider.. do not forget to talk to someone very close to you.. especially in times of trouble..

“We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.” — David Levithan

As MJ23 says it:

"If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Obstacles actually let us strives harder and triumph in the end. Its just up to us to hold and be patient.

Sumi Go said...

These are true! :) Obstacles aren't here to hinder us from achieving our goals, instead these struggles make us stronger and prepare us for something bigger.
