Turning Obstacles in to Opportunities

Over the last couple of months there have been many different obstacles to overcome. It can seem that, at many points in our lives, obstacles have the habit of interrupting us at the most inconvenient times and can, on occasion, bring up the fear of not finding a solution or having to change what was comfortable around us.

Each person has obstacles in their lives and how they deal with them can vary from person to person, yet, one of most important things to do is to ensure that you keep a positive mental attitude while you work out what is the best way for you to overcome the obstacle and make the changes that are needed and then take action.

Whatever the obstacle, it is important to create achievable, simple and realistic goals to ensure success where you can measure the progress and celebrate your accomplishments. By doing this you will pick up momentum, feel motivated and more confident to continue moving forward, often at a more steady/faster pace.

Do not dwell on what you think you cannot do – focus on what you can do!

Often an obstacle is put in your way to test whether or not you think it is worth fighting for. When you decide that it is worth overcoming it brings new growth to yourself and you will often discover new or hidden talents or talents that have been dormant for a while which expands your mind as you learn to adapt. Remember you can control the way you perceive an obstacle.

Coronavirus-19 has affected everybody and in different ways. For some it has been that they have been in isolation, either coping on their own or having to manage a large family in a small home. Many have lost loved ones due to the virus and many people who have had the virus have recovered from it. Businesses large and small have been affected and it can be overwhelming at times trying to keep up with the new suggested rules for the safety of people.

One can become intimidated by it all and if you allow yourself to overanalyse it you could be wasting your time. Instead focus on the obstacles it brings with determination and positivity as although you cannot always control the situation – you can control your attitude. When there is chaos going on around you it is important for you to stay centred and grounded so you can focus on the processes that will help you move forward in your life rather than becoming stuck – keep moving forward each day one step at a time.

Imagine that you are taking a detour from the routine of the road you would normally take as it has been temporarily closed for work to be done on it, and now you are going to explore new pathways and roads that you have not been down before. It is time to follow your intuition as you venture forward, focus on your strengths, and not your weaknesses, with each step you take.

Keep trying different approaches and with each small success that you create your mental strength will increase. You will become more aware of what you have overcome rather than the limits that were there before as you realise that life goes on and it is still amazing to be alive in this incredible world with all the beauty and experiences it has to offer.

Stay focused on the present moment. Accept any negative emotions or anxiety you may feel and then quietly let them go – you are not your emotions so don’t allow yourself to get saturated by them. As you let go of any fear that may come with negative emotions you will discover more peace of mind which will help give you the clarity that you need to overcome the obstacles that you may be faced with.

Ask yourself “What do I need in the here and now in order to feel well and at peace?”

As you continue to protect yourself physically from the Coronavirus-19 by ensuring you keep the social distancing of being 6ft (2 metres) apart – you may like to remember this space in the future as you move forward. This is an ideal space to allow each person to be fully present within their own auric field, of course. It will be great when, once again, we are able to freely step in and out of other people’s auras giving hugs and kisses to those you care about and love which is a great of part of our well-being and who we are and what we need – human touch. Yet, I hope that people overall will have learnt to respect and honour each other’s individual space as we continue to move forward, especially in overcrowded places like supermarkets etc.

As you continue to make the changes in your life that help you overcome this worldwide situation, give yourself time to reflect on what matters to you most and what you would like to do as you move forward in your life. You may find that there are many things that you would like to do differently and now is a good time to reflect on how and what you can do differently in your life that will inspire you and bring you the feeling of more peace and happiness.

Taking care of yourself – looking after your own physical, mental, and emotional well-being in this pandemic is one of the most important things that you can do to help others. So be kind to yourself and remain patient as this situation will pass. It may not be easy for you to embrace this extraordinary period of time, yet with clear vision it could be seen an opportunity to really change your life in the future for the better!
