Hurdles must not stop you from reaching your goals

comment Updated: May 27, 2016 10:47 IST

In their desire to achieve higher goals, humans face hurdles at every step. Some people get scared of these hurdles and give up . Such people are cowards. They must remember that failures are the pillars of success. We have to go miles before we reach our destination. We should not be discouraged by one or two unsuccessful attempts.

We should recollect the story of Robert Bruce, the king of Scotland. Bruce was defeated many times by his enemies. During one such long battle, Bruce hid in a cave where he saw a spider trying to make its web. It failed to build a web several times before it managed to get one done. Bruce learnt his lesson from the spider and decided to give his best shot in the battlefield. He won handsomely.

We must remember that our life is short and we must give it our best shot. We should try to achieve our goals of life even if we fail several times. We should not be disheartened at every unsuccessful step. We should keep faith in God and should also believe that he will help us in our earnest and sincere efforts.

We should move onward with our great efforts for attaining the objectives of our life. Always remember what Michael Jordan said: If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But 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. And here is what Henry Ford had to say on hurdles: Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Inner Voice comprises contributions from our readers.
