Obstacles

People think a soul-mate is a perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul-mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you back to your own attention so you can change your life. A soul-mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so that new light can enter, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.
Do not wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.

A key ingredient for success is discipline.

If you cant manage yourself, your time and tell yourself what you did wrong, or need to do; You wont get anywhere.

It sounds easy, but most people are waiting to be told what to do, Instead of learning how to think for themselves.

Don’t let anyone have that much control over you, but you. After all, no one other than you, is responsible for your success.

When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more than you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us, I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than the distance between us, I love you more than any obstacle that could try and come between us. I love you the most.

Miraculous things happen when you decide to do hard things. In spite of all the reasons not to. In spite of all the obstacles. In spite of all the things to blame. Follow, follow, follow your heart to the life you want. In the end, it is all yours to create.

Ganesh says, "I see all obstacles as being surmountable; in fact, I don’t see obstacles at all, and that’s the point: All barriers in your path are self-imposed. They represent your decision to be afraid of moving forward. You cast your fear outward by projecting thoughts into the future, worried that either this or that may occur. Your worries about the future have created blocks and boogeymen that you will meet on your future path. But don’t worry—since they’re your own creation, you can will them away.
