Life is nothing but an obstacle course, and it's all about getting through that obstacle course to your desired goal that most people seem to have a problem with. It's only normal to encounter obstacles in the pursuit of your dream. It's a test to see if you're worthy.
However, when these obstacles start to become a nuisance to the point of almost putting a stop to your goal(s), or worse, making one completely abandon their goal, one must take action and think things through.
So, with that said, here are some helpful, tested pointers that will keep your attention focused on achieving any goal that you put your mind to.
1. Think Positive
This means: Do not quit. Especially when one is midway in working for a goal, there should be no room for quitting.
To quit is equivalent to going back to the starting line of goal accomplishment. That is time, energy, money, and a whole lot of things wasted and lost. It is more costly to quit than find a solution to the problem, not to mention the frustration one feels.
2. Keep a clear, open, and tense-free mind
Always be ready to receive new ideas: focus and concentrate. Think in a wide-scale manner and always be open to new options to eliminate the particular obstacle you are currently dealing with.
3. Persist and Persevere
Be sure to exhaust every possibility, even to the point of trial and error, to be sure that there is a solution to correct the problem you're dealing with.
Try to picture a possible solution to help overcome and/or solve the obstacle that's setting you back inside your head.
5. Ask for Help
If all fails, get assistance from others you know who are more knowledgeable about the work. Their suggestions might not necessarily be the exact ones you were hoping to hear, but they may trigger some NEW ideas in finding the right solution to your problem.
