”Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – Henry Ford
Good grief! Keep your eyes on the prize!
Never for a moment stop when you have stumbled. Keep moving forward. Keep moving in the direction of your dreams. Keep the momentum. Keep moving. To slow down or to stop allows you to see all of the obstacles in your path. Yes, there is something to be said for “knowing the terrain”, and yes, there is also something to be said for “knowing yourself” and never letting the terrain trip you up.
Move. Forward. Now.
Never look for the obstacles; seek only to find the opportunities.
