We lead a life in which we are socially conditioned to focus only on the negative, on those barriers that, if not overcome, prevent us from seeing beyond. Overcoming them presupposes an exceptional growth, we could say unique. We tend to focus solely on finding solutions, often outside of ourselves. Nevertheless, it is in our power to overcome obstacles.
We do not trust our abilities, that we have the right tools and options to solve the situation; all this is found within us, in our heart. In short, we do not trust our power to overcome obstacles, of the enormous potential inherent in each of us.
"Self-confidence is the first secret of success" -Ralph Waldo Emerson-
When we have to solve problems, we tend to belittle ourselves. We continually try to improve by following the canons established by the environment without listening to our inner universe.
Eventually, we become copies of each other. We also try to look like our idols and role models, believing that they represent and offer what is best for us; what will make us happy.
We have everything we need to outdo ourselves
La the person we should want to imitate and resemble the most is ourselves. We simply seek to improve and expand our essence, our potential as human beings.
Life places obstacles for us to overcome ourselves and have the opportunity to realize, once and for all, that we have everything we need to trust ourselves.
We are different, therefore each of us will solve the same problem in a different way. It is good and healthy to have references, inspirations and masters of life to be inspired by, but it must not be forgotten that we can never be exactly like them. It is best to focus on yourself and avoid confrontations.
The secret to growing and breaking down any barriers present in daily life is knowing yourself, knowing who we are, learning to discover your innate talents and knowing how to use them to the fullest.
Accepting defects, honoring them and understanding that they are meant to teach us to cultivate self-love. Likewise, if we don't know how to solve a problem, we must be humble enough to ask for help.
"If you don't fight for what you want, don't be sorry for what you get"
Each of us he can be and is an extraordinary being. To do this, you need to have self-confidence and love yourself. We are capable and talented individuals, perfectly equipped to take on the adventure of life.
What are the main ingredients for overcoming obstacles?
To believe in oneself and overcome obstacles, one must be humble and determined; know what you want and why; find what makes us unique and different human beings.
Instead of worrying too much about life's difficulties and obstacles, let's focus on our qualities and cultivate an optimistic outlook on life.
We need to be clear about what defines us and improve it. Let's not let negative thoughts prevent us from giving our best; to be a person capable of finding the solution and overcoming any obstacles.
“Most see obstacles; few see goals; history records the successes of the latter, while oblivion is the reward of the former ”.
