Jets, ships and rockets do should you...

Mid course corrections.

No goal was ever achieved in a straight line. No destination was ever arrived at without an adjustment along the way, and so it goes with you. Setbacks, diversions, obstacles and
adjustments are inevitable in the game of life. Your attitude towards these will play a key part in how close you come to getting where you want to go.

If you look at setbacks and obstacles as things that will keep you from your goals, throw you off the track, make you think you really aren't cut out for this...then you'll have a hard time, while being passed by others who have a different attitude...

The attitude that obstacles are inevitable, expected, and as much a part of the game as the score itself.

When something is expected, and known as inevitable, it gets easier to handle when it does show up. At the same time, we all think our obstacles are "special", that if it was a run of the mill obstacle we could handle it, but this...well this is unsurmountable.

The obstacle is the path.

There is always a way, you just haven't thought of it yet.

Treat obstacles as speed bumps, detours, rivers to cross, mountains to climb. Go around, under, through or over...and take the attitude that was passed down to us from the stoics...

Expect what shows up. Now go jump start your day.
