“Smile at the obstacle, for it is a bridge.”
One of the books that I reread regularly is “The Obstacle Is The Way” by Ryan Holiday. I love seeing how people we now hold in high regard had challenges and roadblocks in their lives that would have stopped the average person in their tracks. However, as you read their stories and understand the obstacles they faced, you learn that in many cases, it was the obstacle itself that provided them the opportunity to become the person we now esteem.
The obstacle you face is the gift; it is the moment of opportunity you have been waiting for. What are you going to do with it?
