BARRIERS OR HURDLES?
The path to my dreams is an
obstacle course littered with barriers and hurdles. Whether an
obstacle is a barrier or hurdle depends on how I treat obstacles
in my mind. If I see barriers, I instantly know that this is as
far as I can go. I am at the end of the road, and itís time to
quit. If I see hurdles, I approach the same obstacles and jump
If I go to the University of
Life and get a Ph.D. in the architecture and construction of
impenetrable barriers, I spend my life discovering all the
reasons why I cannot do what I want to do and be what I want to
be. I develop expertise in how to gracefully surrender my
dreams, and I give excellent lectures on the futility of life.
I join the ranks of the Life Long Disoriented who studied at the
same university and have advanced degrees in failure, quitting,
and broken dreams.
If I see hurdles rather than
barriers, I enroll in different courses in the University of
Life. I become an expert at jumping hurdles. I take courses in
tunneling under them and specialize in their demolition.
Hurdles have nothing to do with limitations. They are merely
the challenges I face as I move from one adventure to the next.
