What is a lifetime of living your dreams worth to you?

June 26, 2003.

“It's the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance, sweeps away all obstacles.”
Claude M. Bristol

Some of the best building blocks you’ll ever encounter in life can often come in the form of stumbling blocks. That’s right, many of those annoying obstacles and barriers that get in your way and hold you back can actually be turned into building blocks with a little work — and the right attitude. So roll up your sleeves and let’s get to work.

By conditioning yourself to see life’s stumbling blocks as nothing more than just another set of building blocks in your inevitable ascent to the top, you’ve already hurdled the most difficult part of overcoming obstacles. With a positive charged outlook on life, you can use any obstacle you happen upon as a launching pad instead of a stumbling block.

“Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
Orison Swett Marden

How many of us are quick to run for cover whenever the going gets a bit tough? Instead of hanging in there and finding a way over, around or through any problem encountered, we end up running up the white flag or tossing in the towel.

The tiniest of difficulties often end up becoming huge stumbling blocks because we fail to power through them. When we stand up to the difficult times we face and decide to tough it out, we turn those stumbling blocks into … stepping stones.

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
Napoleon Hill

Nobody really ever gets used to life’s most trying times. After all, none of us likes to get knocked around. But if success is about any one thing, it’s about overcoming life’s stumbling blocks.

When you learn to roll with the punches, always getting up each and every time you get knocked down, you’ll soon be well on your way to fashioning a fabulous lifetime of achievement. Rather than viewing life’s challenges as potential stumbling blocks, you’ll start seeing them as potential building blocks instead.

“Out of difficulties grow miracles.”
Jean De La Bruyere

The manner in which you approach life’s difficult times can literally make you — or break you. You can be overwhelmed and over powered by all sorts of problems or instead can build on each and every adversity that crosses your path.

So what's it going to be — stumbling blocks or building blocks? After all, it’s your call and yours alone. Will you take charge of your life by taking on any and all problems head on — or will your problems take you down, maybe for the count?

Please remember, especially during your most challenging moments, that even the biggest mountain of a problem can be conquered one building block at a time. Or as Robert Schuller puts it, “For every mountain there is a miracle.”

The Bottom Line: You can forge the life you’ve always imagined when you turn your stumbling blocks into building blocks.
