One of the secrets to a life of progress, advancement, success, results, change, is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. Stumbling blocks are all the things stopping you in the track of progress, from doing what you want to do, an obstacle to progress, self-imposed limitations, False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR), negative thinking, complaining, excuses, selling yourself short, and building erroneous images in your mind.
A great way to advance and do the things you want to do is to realize that there will always be obstacles on the path to success. Using these obstacles as stepping stones is the key to progress. For some, obstacles stop them from relentlessly pursuing their dreams while for others obstacles propel them to greatness. What’s the difference? It’s a matter of perspective. When we begin to reframe the issues of life, the challenges, and obstacles and use these challenges as learning on the path of progress, no obstacle will be able to hold us down permanently.
It is crucial to use the negative and challenging events or experiences to help you achieve something else. If you are doing and pursuing something worthwhile or great, there will always be stumbling blocks. The stumbling blocks is a way of weeding out those who are serious and those who are not. Use stumbling blocks as means to an end, or an opportunity to lead you to "bigger and better" things, and as means of progress towards better performance. You are more than you think!
