Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
~ Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan (MJ) is by far one of the most well known and well respected athletes in the world. He was a player and a leader on the Chicago Bulls professional basketball team. He is now one of the principal owners of the Charlotte Hornets.

MJ had many obstacles in life and has the experience to show that they can be overcome. It’s like MJ says, Obstacles don’t have to stop you.  The key is not to turn around and give up.

Have felt like you’ve run into a brick wall?  I’ve run into brick walls before. Literally & Figuratively.  But you can’t let them stop you. OK, the literal one stopped me. COLD! I was out for a while until I came to in the ambulance. But that’s a different story….

When you come to those walls, those roadblocks in achieving your goals, you must take Michael’s advice and figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

Even if your wall looks like the Great Wall of China, you have to remember that even the Great Wall has ends. You can get around the wall.  It may be hard to get over it, or through it, but if you absolutely had to get around it, you could.

The Berlin Wall was a tough wall for many people. It kept people inside the Iron Curtain. In a world they didn’t want to be in. Many people died trying to go through, over or around the Berlin Wall. Does the wall keeping you from Getting The Goals You Set look like the Berlin Wall.  JUST REMEMBER, the Berlin Wall fell! We Tore Down That Wall, and you can tear down your walls, You can go through your wall, or Go Around Your Wall.

Our walls were constructed by someone. In most cases, by us. Because someone constructed the wall, it can be breached.

Go out TODAY and Breach Your Wall! Climb it, Go Through It, or go around it.
