Never Scout the Path Ahead

We all know at least one person that looks ahead, sees the obstacles in the way and decides that the path isn’t worth taking.

Those people tend to call themselves “realists”. I have a few issues with that label.

My first issue is that each of us is capable of seeing ONE reality and it’s never the same as anyone else’s reality.

My second issue is that the obstacles in our paths can make us stronger, faster, and more creative if we start on the journey with the determination to find ways of surmounting the obstacles as we come to them.
