How To Succeed When There Are Roadblocks In The Way

Author:

Don't Just Talk The Talk

Do whatever it takes

You have to walk the walk

Nobody can come to your help

This is something you have to figure out on your own

When you come up with ideas

Write them down

Don't rule out anything

You would be surprised how ideas start to take shape

Over time you can see your thoughts constantly changing

It is o.k.

It is all part of the process

You are afraid

The butterflies got the best of you

Your tired and our mentally exhausted

Get some needed rest

You will feel refreshed

Other days you will be physically wiped out

Your body needs time to refuel

A good long sleep will help

Don't worry nothing is lost

Actually, so much more is gained

Write, write, write

Like you have never written before

Stop listening to the nay Nellies of the world

Time to turn the other cheek

Look up into the sky and see how beautiful it is

Look at the mountains and the sun

You are smack right in between

All the greatest wonders of the world

Now it is time to start acting like it

Don't make excuses

Look for ways that work

If one way doesn't float

It's time to get a rubber ducky

That you will find it impossible to sink

There is no better time than now

I repeat

There is no better time than now

In the past, you have a horrid record

Now it is time to change that

Take away the h and make it a t

You are on your way

Take away the o and make it an e

Change the d to an f

The first time in my life I want an f instead of a d

Now here is the easy part

Add an ic

No need to panic

I know there were a lot of changes

In the end

Look what we have

In the past, you have had a terrific record

Now with that under your belt

How do you feel?

Amazing, and full of endless amounts of energy

Why?

Because now you have confidence

You have a whole history of success

Why should now be any different

You change the past

You can change the future

Once again people will tell you that is crazy

You can't change what has already happened

What is done is done

Over and Finished

You can't go back

At least that's what they want you to believe

I say they are all wrong

I am going to show you how

I am not a physicist and or scientist

Not even a magician

What I am is a dreamer

So without a moment to waste

We are going to use our imagination

Our God given talents

To create the impossible

If you are like me and tired of people saying no it can't be done

Tell them to stick it in their hat

And by chance, they don't have one

Tell them to go buy one

By changing our past in our mind

We will have nothing in our way

Smooth sailing

O.k. not that easy

Some rough seas

So there it is folks

Take it or leave it and weep

John Hansen If we look at our past and concentrate what we did good instead of what didn't work it can drive us to a better place. If we take the bad and let it go we can move ahead and learn as we go. A fresh start is one positive way that feels good and encourages us to do try harder. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. I hope you have a very special night.

Dora Weithers I have had my fair share of bad days and I will do everything in my power to bring the tiniest bit of sunshine. Once that little bit of light brightens your next moment it is easier to see more wonderful things. Thank you so much for reading and sharing your thoughts. Life is so busy that if we blink we might miss something beautiful. It is good to slow things down and enjoy the things we have experienced before we go on to the next moment. This gives me time to reflect and appreciate. Have a great night.

You offer such practical counsel on the nitty-gritty of life. Thanks for sharing.

Devika Primic I have had troubles but they don't compare to the problems that you have faced. You were surrounded by issues that you had to solve. Language, customs, and the everyday way of life. Uncertainty can be my biggest obstacle. I have to keep moving forward. I am amazed by what you have done. If I am able to stay positive I can find a way out. It might take time. Thank you for reading and sharing. It is easy to look back years later. It is so hard when your in the middle of it. Have a nice day.

Gypsy Rose Lee You keep at it week after week. You find new ways to do the things you love to do. It doesn't mean you can't help support your writing career with another job. Maybe working part-time at a local Duncan Donuts or another job that is local until the money starts rolling in. I love your writing and so many other people do also I know it doesn't pay the bills. I get inspired by the bright sun and reading stories of so many people who never give up. They keep applying themselves every day in whatever they want until it is accomplished. Thank you for reading and sharing. All is good here and I hope your day turns out great.

Right now I feel like I have hurdles to jump. I have made it my goal to submit as many writing job bids as I can and hope for the best. I need extra money badly so I hope I will find something next week. I hope you had a great weekend.

DREAM ON This is a positive write. I had many road blocks and faced with a positive thought. I did not give up in every trail I had in a foreign country. It makes me see how confident you are.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on September 12, 2020:

Good advice here, Dream On. Let’s change the past and shape the future so the same mistakes don’t get made.
