obstacles

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?

A Quote by Pierce Vincent Eckhart on adventure, beginning, friendship, jobs, language, learning, life, obstacles, perception, reality, rest, and study

When I was a Boy Scout, we played a game when new Scouts joined the troop. We lined up chairs in a pattern, creating an obstacle course through which the new Scouts, blindfolded, were supposed to maneuver. The Scoutmaster gave them a few moments to study the pattern before our adventure began. But as soon as the victims were blindfolded, the rest of us quietly removed the chairs. I think life is like this game. Perhaps we spend our lives avoiding obstacles we have created for ourselves and in reality exist only in our minds. We're afraid to apply for that job, take violin lessons, learn a foreign language, call an old friend, write our Congressman - whatever it is that we would really like to do but don't because of perceived obstacles. Don't avoid any chairs until you run smack into one. And if you do, at least you'll have a place to sit down.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on doubt, fear, journeys, needs, obstacles, progress, and time

When we are sure that we are on the right road, there is no need to plan our journey too far ahead; no need to burden ourselves with doubts and fears as to the obstacles that may bar our progress. We cannot take more than one step at a time.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on animals, cowardice, and obstacles

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them . . . they are liable to spring upon you; but when you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on obstacles

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

A Quote by Nikos Katzenzakis on journeys, obstacles, and strength

Every obstacle in his journey became a milestone, an occasion for further triumph. We have a model in front of us now, a model who blazes our trail and gives us strength.

A Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on doubt, heroism, obstacles, self, and wisdom

The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one's self a fool; the truest heroism is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom to know when it ought to be resisted, and when to be obeyed.

A Quote by Michael Jordan on obstacles and work

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.

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on ability, life, mountains, obstacles, work, and path

Victories in life come through our ability to work around and over the obstacles that cross our path. We grow stronger as we climb our own mountains.
