Getting Unstuck

We all get stuck. We all hit roadblocks. The difference between success and failure depends on what you do when you get stuck.

People who fail get frustrated by roadblocks. They take them personally. They let roadblocks become excuses first for missing deadlines, then for giving up.

Successful people learn to treat roadblocks like just any other challenge. They see beyond the roadblocks to the destination they want to reach, and they think, calmly: "there has to be some way around this barrier."

Successful people know anything worth doing will involve plenty of roadblocks, so they make overcoming roadblocks a core skill.

Have you practiced overcoming roadblocks lately?
