Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
~ John Adams ~

A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers - and this is the basis of all human morality
~ John F. Kennedy ~


"If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But 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




Everyone who has succeeded at something important in life

Has done so because he did not relent to problems or strife

If there was an obstacle in the way he simply considered his next action

He would go around or push it aside or go over the obstruction

For anyone who is successful knows that there will be hurdles to jump across

But, giving up is a surefire way insure yourself a loss

There are always going to be problems, hindrance or complications

Our founding fathers found this out when starting our new nation

If one comes upon a blockage it doesn’t mean you quit

It simply means you need the courage to face that barrier and overcome it

If it cannot be changed or climbed or moved aside then you might include it in your plan

Just keep in mind that it is a hindrance and not a reason to give up, just ask any successful man
