Life has a way of testing your commitment to a certain cause, principle, or even person. They are called obstacles. Setbacks. Things not going according to plan.

You mustn’t lose faith.

I repeat: you mustn’t lose faith.

What is that, you ask?

The ability to walk through fire, knowing that you’ll come out the other side alive. Burnt, maybe, but alive.

This is required of you is you are ever to achieve anything of importance.

Give up when the obstacles seem insurmontable and you fail. You lose confidence, self-esteem, self-worth.

It is rather simple, isn’t it?

The choice is yours. You must decide each time life tests you, if you are stronger than the test or not, if you wish to continued and succeed or not, if you have the guts, the strength, and the brains to go on, inspite numerous challenges and setbacks.

Life does not compute to a plan, a recipe, or a step-by-step guide. Life is unpredictable, mysterious, and unless you expect that, you’ll get your heart crushed and broked on an almost daily basis.

Expect the obstacles, expect this: that whatever is is you’ll do, you’ll kind of fail at it at least a few times. It is going to be more difficult than you expect, but never as difficult as to not be worth trying at all. And giving your best.

  1. So hard to tell whether or not your objective is worthy. Sometimes the boulder in your path is an obstacle or a milestone you have not recognized before. Taking time to see the objective as it is, improve vs. discard, and weigh in the scales of what is of greatest value. All difficult, but, such is everything in life.

  2. A lot of people don’t understand the value of failure. It is something to learn from and helps in a lot of ways throughout life. It’s never failing that is scary.

  3. A big part of any situation is definitely how you can adapt to it. Like you said, you’ve got to have faith. Sometimes I think that the obstacle isn’t necessarily the problem but rather if people let themselves be defeated by them.
