When we want something in life and we engage in the process of manifesting it, we often encounter obstacles.
“It is when we‘re most determined to bring change into our lives,” Paolo Coelho wrote, “that life sets us a challenge to test our courage & willingness to change.”
When this happens, we start getting creative about the obstacle. We look for ways to remove it.
But I am a strong believer in the idea that it is not the challenge that we are supposed to get creative about, but that creativity requires, even feeds off challenges. Creativity requires both, opposing & complimentary perspectives. There is no true creativity without obstacles.
Love of Fate. Nietzsche believed in loving whatever your fate is. He believed that whatever the hell happens we should be brave enough to say: “This is exactly what I need.”
J. Campbell wrote “It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity. If you bring love to that moment – not discouragement – you will find the strength is there.”
