Your goals may not come easy. There is no accomplishment without work, no “win” without something to beat, and no up without a down. It’s easy to get discouraged when roadblocks appear, it’s totally normal. You’ve invested time, energy, money, emotion and so much more, into creating this “perfect plan”, and then something has to come along and get in the way. Remember though that these blocks are part of the path and all you have to do to beat that barrier, get back up and move forward again. Obstacles are a lot less intimidating once you see them up close and take them on without thought. Next time you find yourself faced with a barrier, no fear just take it on and keep taking steps forward. As long as those steps are forward, even by inches, you are still farther along your path than you were before. It doesn’t matter how many challenges you face or walls you run into, as long as you get back on and move forward. Just remember, there is no up without a down so just take them on and face them!
