The simple truth is that most successful people have not become successful because they have had no problems, but because they did not let them stop them. They persevere in the face of problems.
The next time you are trying to get something exciting done, don’t give up when the something goes wrong. Expect problems to arise. The more challenging your dreams are and the larger your ambitions, the more likely it is that you will face problems in achieving them. Knowing that something will go wrong makes you less likely to be put off when difficulties occur.
View the fact that you are facing a difficulty as a sign that you are making progress. It is only because you have made some progress that the problem arises. When this happens, don’t frown, instead have an inward smile and think – “oh I am really getting somewhere as I’m finding these key problems”. Solve them, one by one, and you will achieve what you want.
The good news is that few problems are truly insurmountable. There is usually a solution to any issue or a way around it. It will take some thought and effort to find, but you will feel great when you do find it. After all, if what you wanted to do was easy it would not be much of an achievement. It is perseverance in overcoming problems that makes achievements so valuable.
