I have never underestimated road blocks – failures, in general.
Of course I feel down, get depressed for a while, but I would always tell myself that a year from the wall life has thrown at me, I would be thankful that it happened, because definitely, my biggest rewards lie just after that wall – it has to be, or that wall would not exist in the first place. I remember adopting this mantra in high school, and it has worked for me ever since.
Sure, you have to step out of your vehicle for a moment, stare at the big road block ahead of you. But it’s easy isn’t it? If there is a wall on your face, all you have to do is climb over it, or go around it – and you’re through.
