Meet life head on

The fastest point in sailing, is when the boat is headed close into the wind. Similarly, the fastest way to success and accomplishment is to meet obstacles head on.

It is a waste of effort and energy, to continually avoid and skirt around the unpleasant problems that stand in your way. Better to plow straight ahead, re-directing the energy of your fear so that it moves you forward.

With the right attitude, the difficulties you face will supply the energy and motivation you need to move past them. Like sailing into the wind, it requires strength, focus and commitment. Yet nothing moves you faster, than being pushed ahead by the very things that stand in your way.
