Many times when we are faced by a challenge, we look at that challenge as an obstacle. It feels like an object that is gigantic in our life road that seems impossible to get beyond. Some will just sit in their life road, accept the obstacle, and not move beyond it.

And then there are others who look at that obstacle as a stepping stone to where they envision life to be. They know that if a problem was created then there must be an answer. They know that the obstacle truly isn’t an obstacle but a stair to helping guide them in another direction toward what they want. It could be a small detour or a whole other road but they recognize that there truly are no obstacles but lessons to take us to a higher level of step to get beyond where we currently are so that we can get to where we want to be.

How about just for today you look at those challenges as stepping-stones instead of that resistant feeling word ‘obstacle?’ And then take it to the next day and the next day and the next day.  Before you know it you will be way beyond that bump in the road that actually helped guide you to where you want to be.
