Let’s take a short trip. Close your eyes…well not now, first read the next paragraph. Close your eyes and remember a time in your life when you felt inspired and excited to make a significant change. What happened? Did you go for it or did your inner obstacles get in the way?
Your beliefs, thoughts and feelings are the foundation on which you build your mental strength, hence your personal success. A solid house can’t built on a foundation of shifting sand, or a compose pile. The same applies to achieving success by using mental strength.
If your beliefs that lead to your thoughts are shaky, scattered and uncontrolled, they will creates internal obstacles that will hold you back unless you destroy them.
Many times it’s our “good intention” friends, colleagues and family members who plant the seed of doubt by trying to talk you out of changing your path. It is when you decide to make a better life for yourself that your decision will be met by all kinds of warnings and cry’s of “look out!”
People will tell you “That sounds great, but do you have any idea how much that will cost you or how long it’ll take to get the kind of result you want?” Or, “What makes you think YOU can do that?” Or, “Why in the world do you want to change? Just put in your time and be happy.” Or the big one…”What will happen if . . .?”
Regardless of who and where this “advice come from, they only serve to increase your level of anxiety and self doubts. The best way to handle such opinions is to say what my good friend T. Harv Eker says, “Thanks for sharing” and then immediately forget what they said.
Learning to handle obstacles is the best way to exercise your inner strength, stand your ground and succeed. While listening or running away only serves to undermines your self esteem.
The Universe presents you with these challenges in order for you to learn to how to develop mental strength, grow stronger and more confident in yourself.
To succeed at overcoming obstacles you need to have the mental strength to stick through any adversity, if you truly believe in your personal goals. You must see things through; to have the mindset to believe more in yourself than in the obstacles and to have the willingness to do what it takes to turn the obstacles around.
This means, you need to stand up to your obstacles and not just believe you can overcome them, but take action AND overcome them! When you attack your obstacles head-on, you’ll find that they will simply evaporate. Heck, you might even have some fun at the same time.
Standing up to and conquering your obstacles develops the inner strength within you and creates sense of accomplishment that reinforces the sense of your personal power. By developing mental strength habits, you instill into your psyche a strong message of endurance and success. This strengthens the belief in yourself and what you can accomplish.
Sometimes you may have to resort to some other measures to overcome obstacles. Here a few simple yet powerful techniques to assist you in developing mental strength
Ask yourself if the obstacle can be ignored. Your fixation of the problem only renders it more cumbersome. If possible, stop paying attention to it. Remember, energy flows where attention goes and results show.
Use humor to neutralize obstacle. This helps to diffuse the tension around the issue.
Take the bull by the horn and address the challenge head-on. This might be challenging at first, particularly if you are not used to confrontation. Yet the more you do it, the easier it will become.
1.See obstacles as a learning to move you forward, fail forward fast!

3. Confront obstacles as habits of success (and not of failure.)
4. Develop the ability to overcome, bypass, or eliminate obstacles.
5. When difficult circumstances arise, take massive and immediate action.
