Overcoming Obstacles in Pursuit of Your Goals


 Overcoming Obstacles in Pursuit of Your Goals

Life can be tough. It seems like everyone around you is winning but you never seem to get ahead. You feel sluggish and overworked, with no motivation to push any further. It's hard to get out of bed in the morning, and you just don't want to do anything. It seems like an impenetrable fog is hanging around you, and you just can't see how to get through it. If this sounds like you, don't worry because you're not alone.
The excuses and obstacles that life throws in your way are a test. Your ability to overcome them is a measure of who you are as a person. The stronger your character, the greater the obstacles that can be overcome, and the person who refrains from making excuses will win out in the end over someone who lets all their problems defeat them.
What matters is how much effort you put into reaching your goals. Even if the goal you're pursuing is "happily ever after," it will never come unless you put in some effort. You will need to complete a substantial amount of work to make the best use of the time that you have left on this Earth, but it doesn't matter how long it takes. If you have a dream to accomplish, then the only thing that matters is how much work you do over all.
It's so common for people who don't want their goals to succeed to make excuses for why they shouldn't try. They might say things like "I can't afford gym membership" or "my parents won't let me go outside that much. They'd go nuts if I came home too tired." Making excuses is like saying that the goal is out of reach, and it's a terrible mindset. If you have decided to do something, then there is no question in your mind that you are going to do it. You just need to put forth some effort, because even if you don't get what you're after, at least you'll have learned a lot about yourself along the way. It's important to be kind and considerate of everyone's feelings, but it doesn't mean that your goals can't be realized.
It's easy to give up on goals when they seem impossibly far away. Often, what people fail to realize is that it's better to be working on something that is nowhere near completion than to have nothing at all. It's like trying to climb any mountain once you reach the peak. If you put a good amount of time and effort into the climb, then you'll end up getting more out of it than if you just went straight to the top and were done with it. You will get a better sense of what dedication really means, and this will allow you to progress farther still toward your goal in the future.
Some people are afraid of failing at their goals, even though everyone fails along the way. Perhaps we should view failure as another form of success because everyone is scared of making mistakes. The ones who are able to make mistakes and learn from them tend to do the best in life. Think of all of the great lessons from Star Wars like, "Why do you always assume that failure is an option?" and "Do or do not, there is no try." It's better to know that you tried no matter what happened than to never do anything at all.
As a person ages, it becomes harder for them to achieve their goals because they have so much more going on in their lives. Their priorities change, they get married and start families, and it becomes harder for them to stay focused on what they want. The worst thing you can do when this happens is to give up on everything that you once wanted. It's very important to be realistic about your goals, and know what you can accomplish with the time you have left.
If you're 40 years old and your goal is to be a professional athlete, then it's pretty unreasonable of you. If your goal is to run a marathon or even play tennis every day, then that's more realistic. You don't need to severely limit yourself, but there needs to be some consideration given in terms of how much time and effort each goal will demand from you. The most important thing to remember is that you can do anything once you stop making excuses.
There will always be people who are going to want to keep you down, and there is no way that you can please everyone, but only you are in charge of your destiny. If your goal is something that will make other people happy, then it's not selfish at all. You don't need approval from anyone else if your dream involves helping other people. You know what kind of outcome you want and what kind of life you'd like to have in the future, and it's up to you alone to make sure it happens.
There's nothing wrong with taking a break from your goals and pursuing some other interests, but if you really want something, you need to remain focused on it. You'll be much happier in the future if you become the person that you want to be, and even if no one else likes it, at least you will have no regrets. No one gets out of this world alive. The only question is whether or not they liked what they did while they were here.

Mistakes are proof that you are trying.
A life lived without mistakes is a life with few lessons learned. It isn't about making mistakes, but how you handle them when they do happen. Your mistakes will shape your future, and it's important for you to grow from them as much as possible. Your greatest lessons will come from your biggest failures, so there's no reason to be afraid of being wrong or learning something new along the way.


When your life is all planned out, it's easy to think that you'll never be able to do anything else. But how many people actually end up accomplishing everything that they set out to do? There is no reason to get hung up on the idea of being a certain person and never being enough for other people. This kind of mindset can prevent you from becoming the person that you want to be. The things we're most afraid of are usually the things that we should be most afraid of. It's important for us to keep our minds open in order to see what's possible for us in the future.
