The Misconception About Obstacles.
Obstacles are never truly insurmountable. They may seem that way sometimes, and sometimes they may distract us with so much darkness that it is hard to see anything but shadow.
Darkness is merely the absence of light. And the beautiful thing is that even in the dark, the light switch remains.
Now we’ve heard it all before. Intentional thinking. Fiery Determination. Inner Stillness. Purposeful Action. Read any empowerment book these days and this is what you will find as the cornerstone toward self improvement. This is what it takes to begin taking down the barriers that keep us stuck and far from where we want to be. All of these things combine together to create a recipe for building the momentum that we’ve been seeking to overcome any obstacle. And it’s all very true. We do have the power to overcome anything. But there is one pesky fact that still remains. We have to learn how to access it. And this takes work.
Here’s the thing. If success, achievement and change were easy, we would all have it just by the desire for it. If we could snap our fingers we could banish our difficulties at will. But this is far from the case. Most of us aren’t able to achieve prosperity and success and happiness on a whim. And furthermore, the traditional approaches of personal development which advocates positive thinking and mental discipline as the main recipe for success don’t work for everyone. The truth is, we are all made differently. Our emotional terrains and mental constructs are unique to our life journey. The lessons that we face along out life path is unique unto ourselves. Each of us has a contrasting relationship with the nature of resistance, conflict and struggle. So in order to push past our limitation, break through barriers and get what we truly desire, we must first address the truth of who we are and what we truly want at the core level. It is on this level that the magic happens. When we learn to tap into this awareness, we can truly begin to move mountains regardless of how tall they seem to be.
