An Obstacle is Often a Test of Character
As a human being living on planet earth, you will always encounter obstacles along your path. However, the way you overcome them dictates how resilient you are. Obstacles are meant to shape you, mold you, and make you wiser and stronger. Nobody says they will be easy, but gathering the courage to move on after an obstacle is what separates you from the rest.
Some of the most successful people have made significant accomplishments by finding solutions to their obstacles. For example, Thomas Edison would have given up every time his invention failed to work. But, he kept on coming up with different ways not to light a bulb. And in the end, he was able to invent the light bulb.
Thus, whenever you are faced with an obstacle, make sure you use it as a stepping stone. The reward that comes with overcoming your hurdles is far greater than succumbing to them. Looking back, you will have a sense of pride of attaining accomplishments you never thought were possible. So, when the going gets tough; try to imagine where you will be in a couple of years.
Failure is part of the success process. If you are in doubt, ask Thomas Edison.
