Obstacles as Part Of Personal Growth

Obstacles are part of our daily lives. Every day, we go around our daily chores and face various obstacles that make our tasks more difficult than they should be. These obstacles can be distractions or may come as direct challenges for us to accomplish what we need our goals. Personal growth comes from conquering these obstacles and not running away from them.

Spend some quiet time with yourself and carefully look at each situation from an objective point of view. Obstacles, no matter how big or small, are our opportunities for growth and how we deal with them can make a big difference. Here are some tips on how to handle obstacles:

  1. Face it – facing obstacles means accepting that you’re supposed to encounter them one way or the other. Remember that no triumph is without obstacles. Do not be anxious or give in to the fear of failing. Once fear takes over, we’ll never be able to move onto the next step. Understanding that we all need these challenges for growth and conquering our obstacles gives meaning and purpose to our life.
  2. Acknowledge the feelings – the meaning of life depends on how we view it in general and understand that it’s natural to feel anxiety or fear during challenging situations. Try not to deny these emotions as humans are bound to experience them. Acknowledge the fact that you may feel anxiety and fear but do not try to cast them aside as it is natural to have these emotions in trying times.
  3. Understand the reason behind your fears – most of the time, people do not actually fear the actual obstacle but rather the assumed effects of these obstacles. Most of these fears are caused by our pessimistic view and assumptions based on what we think will happen. Find out where your anxieties are coming from – is it from a previous experience, is it from fear of failing or from other people’s experience? Now, address those reasons so you can focus on how to actually conquer the obstacles.

Our minds are very powerful when it comes to molding us to face and conquer the obstacles in our way. Most of the time, understanding yourself is the best source of confidence to overcome these obstacles. It all starts from believing these obstacles are conquerable.
