“Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.”
Robert Schuller

The world sometimes seems as if it is full of all sorts of STOP signs. Now I’m not talking about the stop signs we see when driving down the street. No, what I am talking about here are the people, circumstances and barriers that prevent us from living the lives we’ve always dreamed of living.

You know how the story goes. Something all of a sudden really gets us all charged up and raring to go. We get started, passionately pursuing this venture with all of the fire and fervor we can muster, when all of a sudden we get smacked with a STOP sign.

“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

We get started again but soon encounter yet another STOP sign. Now, with a good portion of the wind let out of our balloon, we begin once more only to run into another STOP sign. Start and stop. Stop and start. Before long, we grind to a complete stop, with the goal of completing the project grinding to a halt as well.

These STOP signs constantly get in our way, often stopping us cold in our tracks. These annoying STOP signs impede our progress, thwarting our efforts to do our best. These frustrating STOP signs stifle our creativity, preventing us from being our best. And these irritating STOP signs submarine our confidence, keeping us from enjoying the very best life has to offer.

“All adverse and depressing influences can be overcome, not by fighting, but by rising above them.”
Charles Caleb Colton

The best way to eliminate these STOP signs from your life once and for all is to ignore them entirely. That’s right, whenever and wherever you come across a STOP sign, you need to roar right through it like it wasn’t ever there.

Anything or, for that matter, anyone that attempts to stop you from making the most of your God given talents is one of those STOP signs that must be avoided at all costs. After all, how can you ever fulfill your dreams and live the life you deserve if you constantly allow these STOP signs to stand in your way?

“The world has the habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show that he knows where he is going.
Napoleon Hill

The key to success is to get started and then keep on going until you get the job done. While you will no doubt stumble and get bounced around on your trip to the top, you must never, ever grind to a stop.

If you are ready to make your life everything you’ve always dreamed it could be, then why not pull out all the stop signs in your life and then toss them in your rear view mirror? You need to find that special something that you love, get started doing it and then keep doing it every day for the rest of your life. And last, but certainly not least — never, ever stop chasing your dream and following your heart.

The Bottom Line: With the STOP signs gone for good, you can put the pedal to the metal as you speed along the highway to success.
