This is from a post that I wrote on another blog. It has to do with a three step technique that I used to overcome a blog writing obstacle. My reason for reposting this here is because it addresses the basic problem of our inability to see obstacles as opportunities. Let me not take up your time, and leave you to read the post.
TURN YOUR ADVERSITIES INTO YOUR GREATEST STRENGTH
True - this is not a saying you can identify with when you are getting the thick end of the stick every time you pick one up, yet, this simple maxim is what differentiates true success from the pseudo ones that stand tall only to crumble as life works away at the foundations built on vanity and self obsession. The secret trick here lies in being able to learn to not just swallow one's pride but to be able to turn it into good medicine. I was fortunate to have the opportunity of learning this recently.
