There are no detours around obstacles
There isn't a meaningful goal that can be achieved, without facing obstacles and hurdles. It's an inevitable part of life's road to success. The more you come to grips with this, the faster you'll get where you want to go!
Instead of seeing difficulties as the end or your dreams, see them as part of the journey. View obstacles as challenges, which, once overcome, will bring you closer to your destination, Refuse to be stopped - keep focusing on where you want to go.
When the going gets tough, remind yourself that snags build wisdom, perseverance and strength, with this outlook your frustrations will transform to motivations and success will come your way more quickly.

“Begin it now!”
Take a moment to think about something you’d like to achieve, change or improve in your life.
Without criticizing or blaming, ask yourself these questions:
Have my actions matched up to show that I am truly committed to achieving this goal? Am I really serious about achieving it? How much do I want this and why?
To make things happen you have to take action. The German writer Goethe said, “Whatever you can do or dream that you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic and power in it. Begin it now.”
Today, embrace boldness and take a step toward achieving a goal that is important to you. When you take action, the universe has a magical way of meeting you halfway.
