Sunday Stairs and Stepping Stones

Sunday Stairs and Stepping Stones

Today’s quote is the basis for today’s blog. Think of obstacles as stepping stones instead of roadblocks. You can step on them, squashing them down into the stream and in doing so, get to the other side. Or, you can walk around them, perhaps getting wet in the process, but getting to the other bank nonetheless. You’ll fail only if you sit on the bank and lament that you can’t get across.

Also, imagine a staircase. At the top is your goal – whatever that may be. If you look at the staircase as a giant obstacle that you must leap in a single bound, you’ll find it daunting and impossible. But if you take it consistently, one step at a time, it becomes easier to reach your goal.

Discouraged? Think of staircases and stepping stones. You’ll find your way.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #102:  
“ Think of obstacles as stepping stones or stair steps.”
