The Obstacle Is The Way: Cocktail of Creativity

Has your creativity, passion or project ever hit a brick wall? Whether it be a mental brick wall, or your competition crushing you, this quote reminds us that it may not be a bad thing, it could actually counterintuitively be quite the opposite.

All great victories, be they in politics, business, art, or seduction, involved resolving vexing problems with a potent cocktail of creativity, focus, and daring. When you have a goal, obstacles are actually teaching you how to get to where you want to go- carving you a path. ‘The things which hurt,’ Benjamin Franklin wrote, ‘instruct.'” -Ryan Holiday (pg.8)
