When Facing an Obstacle

“There are a few things to keep in mind when faced with a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. We must try:

• To be objective • To control emotions and keep an even keel • To choose to see the good in a situation • To steady our nerves • To ignore what disturbs or limits others • To place things in perspective • To revert to the present moment • To focus on what can be controlled”
