Has an obstacle in your way ever made you want to quit? This quote reminds us that, that particular obstacle may just be where everyone else quit, and a true opportunity may be waiting on the other side.
Doing new things invariably means obstacles. A new path is, by definition, uncleared. Only with persistence and time can we cut away debris and remove impediments. Only in struggling with the impediments that made others quit can we find ourselves on untrodden territory- only by persisting and resisting can we learn what others were too impatient to be taught.” -Ryan Holiday (pg.80)
