One of the secrets to a life of progress, advancement, success, results, and change, is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. Stumbling blocks are all the things stopping you from achieving your desires, doing what you really want to do to fulfil your purpose and destiny. Stumbling blocks are obstacle to your progress, your self-imposed limitations, all your fears, your negative thoughts, constant complaining, your creative excuses, selling yourself short, and building erroneous images in your mind.
To advance and do the things you want to do you must realize that there will always be obstacles on the path to progress, advancement and success. Obstacles remind us that what we want to achieve is doable and our ability to sidestep the challenges is a testament that we have been proven and tested and now have earned the right to have what we want. Using stumbling blocks as stepping stones is the key to progress. For some, stumbling blocks stop them from relentlessly pursuing their dreams while for others it propels them to greatness. What’s the difference? It’s a matter determination, tenacity, and perspective. When we begin to reframe the issues of life, the challenges, and obstacles and use these challenges and stumbling blocks as learning on the path of progress, no obstacle will be able to hold us down permanently. Stumbling blocks are saying, are you really serious about what you want? Do you want it badly enough to pay the price of success? Are you ready to be creative enough to work around, go through the obstacles to achieve your goal? It is time you shift your paradigm regarding stumbling blocks; obstacles and challenges for without it we will be ‘half baked’ to confront the issues of life and win.
It is crucial for you to use the negative, challenging events and experiences of life to help propel you towards your goals. If you are pursuing something worthwhile and great, there will always be stumbling blocks. A stumbling block is a way of weeding out those who are serious and those who are not. Use stumbling blocks as your steeping stone and springboard to achieving your goals; or as an opportunity to lead you to "bigger and better" things; and as a means of progress towards better performance, results and accomplishment. Starting today, see obstacles differently and let obstacles work for you and not against you.
