“If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.” — Frank A. Clark, politician
It holds us back from progress in all areas. “It” is our collection of endless reasons, rationalizations, excuses, and perceived barriers on our path. This collection is what we put in the way, in between our present pace and our goal. This collection also protects our egos from the pain of failure and suffocates our dreams in tempting comfort zones.
Collections, like the comic books and baseball cards of our youth, can be let go.
One by one, our reasons can be tested and broken.
Excuses acted upon and pushed through.
And barriers run over by new perspective and persistence.
