Access Point: What Obstacles?
"In the great game of life there are no obstacles, only conditions of the game."
- James McPartland
Obstacles are often immovable; conditions consistently change. We must play to win under the conditions, versus playing not to lose against the obstacles.
We will always face challenges, no matter what we pursue. It is a natural part of life.
What matters most is what we see, hear, and act upon when the opposition rears its ugly head. How we choose to interpret the events is one of the keys to the kingdom of High Performance. Do you look and listen for what is in the way – or – for what is on the way?
We all get what we focus on, and we often nail our own feet to the floor. Consider that whatever it is that you are facing, it is bigger in your mind than anyplace else. It is only a game, and if you remain aware, you can see that the conditions of the game will inevitably change.
Try to stay out of your head and on the field. It is the only place where the real game is played.
