There are no detours around obstacles
There isn't a meaningful goal that can be achieved, without facing obstacles and hurdles. It's an inevitable part of life's road to success. The more you come to grips with this, the faster you'll get where you want to go!
Instead of seeing difficulties as the end or your dreams, see them as part of the journey. View obstacles as challenges, which, once overcome, will bring you closer to your destination, Refuse to be stopped - keep focusing on where you want to go.
When the going gets tough, remind yourself that snags build wisdom, perseverance and strength, with this outlook your frustrations will transform to motivations and success will come your way more quickly.
