There are days I stumble through life, cursing the obstacles I face. The truck not starting, trouble fixing a computer, or a struggling friendship.
They seem like they’re an obstacle in my way that I could do without.
I’m learning instead of seeing these situations as trouble, I need to use these obstacles to become great. And so do you.
Michael Phelps recently made history by winning the most medals in the Olympics. He, as of 2012, is the most decorated Olympian in history.
He achieved this through hard work and overcoming obstacles. Some of those obstacles were intentionally placed by his swim coach Bob Bowman.
Bob would intentionally put obstacles in the way of Michael Phelps.
Could you imagine this happening to you as a swimmer?
