I may call this thing an obstacle but it isn’t.
It is much more. Sorry. It’s a complicated, and maybe complex system of people and connections and skills and issues and needs. When I call it an “obstacle,” making it almost invulnerable, it’s likely because of I’m panicking or fearful.
The more accurately I can describe what I really face the more chance I have of seeing where potential opportunities lie within it.
There’s one more element to the “obstacle.”
Me. I have to know myself accurately. Only then I may bring the full me to bear on what I must overcome.
The best way of knowing who I am arises from knowing who others are, who may become the people who bring help in the form of skills and abilities I do not possess.
