Overcoming obstacles

This is a fresh year...I'm sure we're all looking forward to great times ahead but possibly not looking forward to the challenges and obstacles that they will bring with them.
I pray these quotes will nudge you forward...to face and overcome them.

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.
~ Bernice Johnson Reagon

You are the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life. ~ Les Brown

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
~ Joshua J. Marine

Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have.
~ Norman Vincent Peale

The only way to find the limits of the possible is by going beyond them to the impossible.
~ Arthur C. Clarke

Obstacles will look large or small to you according to whether you are large or small.
~ Orison Swett Marden

As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

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


One more thing: with 360 days to go in this year, remember that there will be times when you need someone to help you up so you can get over, through or out of a challenge...
don't be too proud or scared to stretch out your hand and receive that help.
