I have been reading much on this site and in many books and online sources about “overcoming obstacles”.
Oh yes, being able to move past an obstacle without to much disturbance is the objective when meeting obstacles. However, isn’t it our goal to eliminate the obstacles altogether. Are we not meant to live an obstacle free life. I never hear of anyone talking about how there lives are obstacle free.
I have visited many sites for life coaching and read many personal page profiles here on co-creators. Those focused on helping others always read “getting past the obstacles” however none ever say “live an obstacle free life”. Maybe if they keep you skirting obstacles, instead of eliminating them, you will continute to come back for advice.
I am taking a stand to let you all know that I believe that this “obstacle free life” is possible.
I can not say that mine is completely free of obstacles however they seem to be showing up less and less. I cant remember when the last time I came face to face with an obstacle. They are foreign. It has been so long that it is gone from my memory and I have not entertained the though of them for quite some time. I was actually reluctant to write about this, hence giving them thought. I would encourage you to not dwell on the thought of them.
So that being said, where do we go from here. Once I read, if you don’t like doing something stop and don’t do it. If it doesn't give you joy, stop and don’t do it.
Four life obstacles pop into my head and if you practice keeping them at bay you will see the effects.
Keeping the four life obstacles (fear, lust, debt and stress) out of your house.
The objective is to lead a peaceful, happy and joyous life with minimal stress. (as carla would say "Be Happy")
So you might ask what are some of the stress list subjects. I call it my elimination list.
Worry, Envy, fault finding, greed, jealousy, anger, failure, fear and judgment to name a few. I'm sure you can add to the list.
Maybe we can come together and eliminate some of these.
Does anyone what to talk about eliminating obstacles and becoming obstacle free. I mean really eliminate it, never to see them again.
What did you do today to avoid the obstacle? Could you have handled it differently and eliminated it completely to never see it again?
