Hit A Wall?–Turn The Corner!

By Rusty @russellpurkiss

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”–Michael Jordan

Wow, things certainly don’t go always as planned, in fact they hardly ever do!  You make plans, you calculate just how things should go,

Hit A Wall?–Turn The Corner!
but then at a certain point you are met with an obstacle, something gets in the way!  So what do you do, give up or just try to plow through the wall?  Well, another consideration would be to go around the wall.  This may sound to you as very elementary, but sad to say giving up is exactly what many people end up doing.

It really bugs me when I read things like, “make money fast at home with out doing anything!“  The get rich quick just does not happen that way.  Yes, you can get rich quick, if you already have a bit of money to invest in something that just happens to be a success in a short amount of time.  But if you think you will start making big bucks by investing in a $20 kit that has the answers to great wealth, then you are in for a disappointment! People who are always looking for this “easy way” are afraid of walls.

To be successful, you have to get to the point where walls are obstacles that you look forward to. They make you strong, they get you to put on your thinking cap to find a new and better way.  But in the end, you will always have to resort to rolling your sleeves up and working for what you want to achieve.  If you were to come into a lot of money without having to work for it, you most probably would not have the necessary respect for it as you would had you worked hard!

Walls are there because that is just a part of life!  You embark on a new adventure, you travel up the road a ways, and boom sure as the nights follows day, there is an obstacle!  Finding alternative ways of reaching your goal is something well worth the while of getting the hang of.  The world is just full of people, circumstances and conditions that force us to change courses many times a long the way.  It is a wonderful thing, it keeps us alive, it keeps us creative and inventive.  With them we would just live a simple existence instead of being faced with the excitement of challenges!

It takes time patience and perseverance and just a simple desire to go somewhere, so something, and to change the world around us!  How do you deal with the walls in your life?  Do you stop and look for a sledge-hammer to bang away at it, or do you look for a way around it?  Your thoughts are appreciated!
