Week 26 Stepping into Greatness Lesson

Overcome Your Obstacles and Let Them Teach You Something

obstacles path


On this journey called life there will be obstacles in your path. There is no way to avoid them as there will always be something to overcome in order for you to achieve your goals and what you want in life. Obstacles and problems exist for a reason. They will show up in your life as teachers.

When they do show up do not lose sight of your goals. Do not focus your attention and your energy on the problem as that is what you will get more of. Don’t be saying things like, “What did I do to deserve this?” Or “Why does this always have to happen?”

What you should do is simply acknowledge the problem or the obstacle and ask yourself, “What is this situation trying to teach me?”

I know you probably have all heard of the saying before, everything happens for a reason, but it is true. There is no such thing as random in the universe and I mean nothing. When a very difficult and in some cases almost impossible situation arises, you need to look around and examine what you are doing in your life.

Each and every person is very unique in the way that they receive information from the universe as infinite intelligence will communicate with us in different ways. Maybe your lessons will show up in the form of plunging finances or maybe even failing health.

There was a story about a very spiritual teacher who knows that she will need to reevaluate her life by the condition her car is in. When she starts losing her spiritual way or stops focusing on her goals her car will usually break down. I know it is strange but the universe is a strange and a very perfect place.

So no matter what form or forms your teachers take, you should recognize them as wake-up calls. Start paying attention because the universe is trying to tell you something.




Here is this week’s personal exercise:

I want you to think of how many times that you personally have faced difficulties or problems in your life. When these difficulties and problems or obstacles arose and presented themselves did you put the blame on to someone else or maybe even God? Did that really solve anything when you start blaming other people for your problems?

The next time some obstacles come up I want you to try something new. I would like you to be grateful and thankful for the situation. Yes, that is what I said, be thankful.

Then, gratefully ask, “What is this temporary situation trying to teach me?”

I just want you to say thank you and ask that question in your heart and out loud every day until this problem and situation passes. Write in your daily journal detailing what occurs during this time. It starts with an attitude of gratitude and acknowledging your willingness to be a student to the universe. Once you do that your obstacles and difficulties in life will leave very quickly.

Remember, every liability is just an asset in hiding.

Remember, Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself. It is time to create the best life possible!

Until next week
