Time, Space & Encouragement

It may feel like it sometimes

but other people are not in your way

No one is in your way

  1. "No one is in your way"

    Powerful thought, Paul. Something to take with us wherever we go. (Although that guy in front of me in the checkout line with a cart full of groceries sure feels like he's in my way!)

    Hope you're having a wonderful week.

  2. Thanks Ronnie Ann,

    That guy is often ahead of me in the checkout line too and sometimes I catch myself blaming him just for being there.

    Then I feel better when I remember he's not in my way at all :)

  3. This is a simple but powerful message, Paul. I believe very strongly that we create (and can therefore remove) our own obstacles. Recognition of our ownership of our destiny is a critical step in development not to mention happiness. Thanks for keeping these insights coming!

  4. Hi Chris,

    That's a tough one because many of us face obstacles we don't create and have no power over, especially in our careers.

    This post was a personal reflection on what we often see as 'things in our way' and how my views changed when I realised other people weren't stopping me from getting what I wanted, even though it can feel that way at times.

    Thanks for your comment, you have moved the ball forward as always!
