QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them…they are liable to spring upon you; but…if you look them squarely in the eyes, they will slink out of sight.”. -Orison Swett Marden
Beloved, as you start this week, I want you to take this quotation to heart. Many of us have failed woefully just because we sighted obstacles on our way without even coming nearer or just heard that there are obstacles before anyone can achieve success. But Orison says that ability to stand and confront obstacles is what will make us successful in life.
Personally, I am what I am today because of obstacles and challenges of life I have faced in life. I took decision to make a name for myself despite obstacles and challenges. I resolved that challenges and obstacles should become stepping stones for me to climb into the world stage where I will be recognized.
It has never been an easy walk. There was a period of neglect, denial, abandonment, extreme want and fears but determination, courage and commitment saw me through. Who would have believed that I will become what I am today after over seven major surgeries, heavy ear and many other effects of obstacles which came on my way in the past 17 years?
Therefore, my beloved, don’t let those obstacles of no money, no helper, no sponsor, no academic certificate, no spouse, no child, no parents, sickness, deformity, etc, make you to throw in the towel. You still have a lot ahead of you. There are greater opportunities coming your way, which you shouldn’t allow to elude you. Now is the opportunity to rekindle that your dream. Now is the opportunity to arise from slumber and take your rightful place among legends.See you at the top!
