The greater the obstacle(s), the more glory in overcoming it!

Once lived one man on the island.He was engaged in cattle breeding.He had  sheep, cows, horses.Then he decide  to sell everything he had and to move into the city, to  become a photographer,because he loved to watch pictures in the newspapers.

And he sold everything and became a photographer.Just like that, he bought a camera and found a job in local newspapers.And he worked every day without any problems.Then he decided to become an actor.He applied for an audition for a new film and he got the main role.He became a famous actor.

Then, he decided to marry and have a family.He found a woman of his dreams and they got married.He bought the house of his dreams. Then he decided to become a famous singer.He went to the studio and recorded a couple of songs and became famous all around the world.

He became unhappy with his life and with successes  and none of them he did not appreciate enough.He started drinking and like everything in life he was the best in that too.

What was missing to the main character of my story ?

Obstacles. Everything went smoothly in his life.Most people who win a lottery spend all the money and  back to the start.Why. Because they do not appreciate them enough because they came to them easily.

Story above is not real, because we need obstacle(s) on our way in order to achieve success and evolve.

Obstacles are your road sign that you are on the right road. Without them you would be lost.Without them you would not appreciate enough your success. Without them you  can not make success!

PER ASPER AD ASTRA-through hardships to the stars!

Whatever you do in life, you will meet obstacles.You will find them on your way , you can be sure,but you must prepare your brain for them. No matter how good you are, or you think you are, you will find obstacle (s) on your way.You have here two choices :
– to let them to discourage you;
– to overcome them.

First, you must defeat  your biggest obstacle. Your mind .Your mind could be your biggest friend or  your worst enemy.The biggest obstacle is in your head.When you  overpower that obstacle, all others will be a piece of cake for you.

Do yo think that you have to be beautiful to be a famous actor ?You’re wrong! Just look at the Sylvester Stallone. Because of birth trauma, the lower left side of his face is paralyzed, just like his mouth,they are slightly crooked and his tongue is partly paralyzed.But his brain was not his biggest obstacle!

Or Madeline Stuart who was born with Down Syndrome but she had a one dream . To become a model!? And she did it.She recently appeared as a model on the New York Fashion Week.

Or the great Abraham Lincoln .Failure after failure,mother’s death, job failure,dismissal at work,he faced bankruptcy.But he became one of the greatest presidents of USA of all time.

From defeat to defeat to the final victory!

Not to mention  J.K. Rowling,author of Harry Potter. Single mother who struggled just to make ends meet.She lived in  apartment that was greatly infested with rats.Her publisher said “Who will read fairy tales in the 21st century ? Give up”.And she didn’t .

Defeat your fears, and your all obstacles to achieve your dreams , and don’t forget You Can Do It!!!



Once in a time, I have discovered that we are, humans,we are walking universe.
That we create our own destiny. After that, nothing was the same !

      I love real examples, and we can find them a lot in our world.
      They are great examples how we should behave in life .

      Thank you so much for your comment


  3. Ben, there is so much in my life I am deeply and forever grateful for because those aspects came with a price … obstacles and a huge journey toiling up the mountain in order to gain the summit. If we do not work towards something putting our everything into it, we have no appreciation for that something. I’m glad I had to work for everything I have in my life. Do I wish at times my life was easier? Heck yes! But would I have attained as much growth and wisdom? No. Thank you for this beautiful and needed post! 💖
