Failures are divided into two classes -- those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.

The obstacle

Within the obstacle is opportunity. Can you see it and act on it?

Are you fearful of what the problem will do to you? Or can you bring forth the courage to understand what you can do with the problem?

You can complain about the unfairness of it all and wish for a more favorable situation. Or you can go to work with exactly what life has handed you.

Don’t stick yourself with the assumption that the obstacle you face will lead to something worse. Decide that it will lead to something better, and then figure out how to make that happen.

The obstacle exists whether you want it to or not. You don’t have the ability to wish it away, but you do have the ability to transform it into a net positive.

Accept that challenge and put the best of yourself into it. See the opportunity and make it into real, lasting value.

— Ralph Marston
