You can focus on things that are barriers or you can focus on scaling the wall or redefining the problem. (Tim Cook, business executive)
Many of us can be easily stymied by anything that stands in the way of our progress. We just don’t want to face those obstacles; we’d rather move on to something else. But Cook points out a much better way. Face the difficult issues and, rather than avoiding them, study them more carefully to discover ways to potentially overcome the difficulty and move on to success.
Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people. (Isaiah 57:14)
