What Stands In The Way Becomes The Way
“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” - Marcus Aurelius
Throughout our lifetime we always encounter obstacles. Whether it’s a career choice, life problems, financial decisions, adversity, etc. there is always an obstacle preventing us to get what we want and where we want to be.
Once we feel this obstacle, most of us falter and not continue because of fear. This is the fear of failure and the fear of the unknown. Fear isn't bad at all. It’s hard wired into our brains.
It is part of us. Without fear our existence as a human will never be complete. But we should understand that not giving into fear and being aware of its existence can help us go through the obstacles in our life.
Awareness is a key factor in dealing with obstacles or adversity in life.
We should always remind ourselves that to achieve great things in life, we will face obstacles. These obstacles will sharpen us, make us wiser and stronger for believing in ourselves and trusting the process.
What stands in the way becomes the way.
