Obstacles

The following quote led me to a glimpse into the life of an amazing man.  Before reading the quote, I had never heard of Orison Swett Marden.

His story fascinates and inspires me.  After a life of much hardship and challenge, he became among other things, a successful author.  His book, Pushing to the Front (Houghton-Miffen 1894), became an instant best seller.  He went on to publish over 50 books.  Among them,  Prosperity: How to Attract It; an essential and seminal work on the Law of Attraction.  He also founded Success magazine in 1897.

“Obstacles are like wild animals.  They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can.  If they see you are afraid of them…they are liable to spring on you, but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.”

I love the image of looking squarely at the obstacles we face, both big and small and watching them “…slink out of sight.” Wishing you the power to face your obstacles.
