The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well and doing well whatever you do.

Filled with opportunities

What if the things you thought would hold you back actually were to provide you with new ways to move forward? What if within your greatest annoyances you could find your greatest effectiveness?

Instead of fighting against the perceived obstacles, take a closer look at them. Somewhere within each obstacle is a pathway for moving forward.

Consider that it’s not the obstacle itself that’s stopping you. What’s stopping you is your assumption that you can be stopped.

Yet you can change that assumption. You can choose to find a successful way through the situation, whatever it may be.

The various challenges that come your way can be quite intimidating. Yet when you let go of the intimidation, you’ll see that those very same challenges are filled with opportunities.

Embrace those obstacles, embrace those challenges. For they are essential components of your eventual achievement.

— Ralph Marston
