Have you ever experienced difficulty in achieving a goal or dream? An unforeseen obstacle blocked your path and the journey become too much for you.
You may have been on the right path. There is a truth in life called the Law of Opposites and it states that before you see whatever it is that you want, you’ll see the exact opposite. If you desire more friends then you’ll experience what it is like to have no friends. If you want a job then you’ll experience what it is like to be without a job. If you want to be married then you’ll experience what singleness is like.
On the road to finding whatever it is we are looking for we will experience the exact opposite. It is up to us to take note that this is a cue from life indicating that we are in fact on the right track. If you will, the obstacle is the way as Ryan Holiday has said. However, many people take the obstacle as a sign that they need to give up. Or that it is too hard to be done.
The secret truth about goals is that in order to accomplish them we have to become the type of person who is able to achieve that particular goal. For example, the person who is a Doctor is an individual who will have to learn about dedication and discipline to their studies in order to accomplish it. The journey of the goal will change the individual and they will add skills along the way. They will face opposition along the way. The opposition will be different for each person.
However, the opposition is only there to help make you into that the person that achieves that goal. If it was easy then you might not be able to learn anything about your self. In essence, it is about the journey not the goal.
If you are experiencing obstacles in your life right now then take heart that you are on the right path. Keep going forward in faith that you will be able to achieve it. The mere fact you have a desire to do it means that it is already a possibility.
