Path Of Least Resistance
For those who have no goals in life, obstacles are probably nonexistent, since their days unfold according to the direction of the wind. When you have no goals and aspirations anything goes…and when you are faced with resistance, you just follow the path of least resistance. But what kind of life is this? The life of the mediocre and the average.
Obstacles Are To Be Expected
For those who have goals and dreams, obstacles are guaranteed and to be expected. In fact, the bigger your goals and dreams are the bigger you can expect your obstacles to be. This is because when you want to achieve great things, you have to take great action. Taking great actions naturally lead to great resistance from others and those things in the world you’re acting upon, your environment.
In fact, Newton’s third law states:
When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body.
To apply this law to your massive action for change and pursuit of your goals, you are the first body exerting a force on your environment which is the second body. Since your environment is receiving a push from you, it reacts in response to your force in equal measure, and pushes you back in hopes of pushing you back where you came from.
Newton’s law of motion states:
The action and the reaction are simultaneous, and it does not matter which is called action and which is called reaction; both forces are part of a single interaction, and neither force exists without the other.
So when you experience obstacles in pursuit of your goals and ambitions do you give up? Of course not! Obstacles are precisely part of your goal pursuit process and are intended to help you learn and grow to the point of achieving that goal. In fact, the obstacles you face form the litmus test as to whether you deserve that goal.
You have the ability within you to achieve anything you desire, so long as you are dedicated, committed and work hard to figure it out.
Take it as a good sign if you are facing obstacles in pursuit of your goals and aspirations. The more obstacles you have the greater the worthiness of your goal.
Remember, it’s when you’re on the verge of giving up that you’re about to have a breakthrough. So press forward! Identify those obstacles that stand in your way of your success. Push through and figure out how to overcome your obstacles to show you are ready to receive the reward of your goal.
You have the power to overcome any obstacle that stands in your way!
