A Quote by Stefan Nadzo on devil, egotism, enemies, and obstacles

If there is an enemy, it is the ego. If there is a devil, it is the ego. Every obstacle is created by the ego, for the ego. Every obstacle. The ego can be overcome, and in so doing are you made free. That is the way.

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on jobs, managers, motivation, obstacles, people, and principles

I'm slowly becoming a convert to the principle that you can't motivate people to do things, you can only demotivate them. The primary job of the manager is not to empower but to remove obstacles.

Scott Raymond Adams (1957 -)

A Quote by Robert Scheid on circumstances, death, doubt, eternity, fear, giving, happiness, hope, learning, life, limitations, logic, love, obstacles, praise, reason, struggle, trust, universe, and world

Life . . . is a joyful expression of love, praise and thanksgiving instead of a hopeless struggle which eventually ends in death. Giving thanks in every circumstance, we forego the logic and reason which asks, "Why me?" and open our hearts and learn to trust. Every obstacle becomes an occasion for rejoicing. We put love at the center of our universe and we are lifted beyond the world of limitation, doubt, and fear into the realm of love, hope, and eternal happiness.

A Quote by Robert J. Kleinhenz on automobiles, beginning, camping, journeys, mountains, obstacles, struggle, and trying

When asked what it was like to set about proving something, the mathematician likened proving a theorem to seeing the peak of a mountain and trying to climb to the top. One establishes a base camp and begins scaling the mountain's sheer face, encountering obstacles at every turn, often retracing one's steps and struggling every foot of the journey. Finally when the top is reached, one stands examining the peak, taking in the view of the surrounding countrysideand then noting the automobile road up the other side!

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on good, intention, and obstacles

A good intention but fixed and resolute - bent on high and holy ends, we shall find means to them on every side and at every moment; and even obstacles and opposition will but make us "like the fabled specter-ships," which sail the fastest in the very teeth of the wind.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Ralph Marston on belief, effort, good, imagination, limitations, mind, and obstacles

Perfectionism is really a manifestation of the belief that one's efforts are never good enough. Imagine: How many of the obstacles standing in your way are the product of your own imagination? What have you convinced yourself that you can't do? What limitations have you come to believe in? Your mind is very powerful and effective. Is it working for you, or against you?
