What’s Your Excuse?

We have talked about obstacles many times at Stay on Target. The reason this topic comes up so often is that there are many obstacles to success. Some are huge. Others are convenient. Rarely, are any insurmountable, if you really want to reach your goal.

You may recall the story of Bethany Hamilton, a surfer who was attacked by a shark in 2003.

Bethany survived the attack but lost her arm as a result. However, she did not let this deter her from her dream of surfing. She returned to her board less than one month after a shark took her arm. In 2005, with one arm, Hamilton took 1st place in the NSSA National Championships.

The size of your obstacle is not the determining factor in whether you reach your goal. Your determination in overcoming the obstacles is the only factor that matters.
