Overcoming Obstacles

What do you do when obstacles block your path?

It is not a matter of IF you will experience them. 

The question is HOW will you handle your next one?

Let's be real - all of us meet obstacles, and sometimes they threaten to take us off course.  

The way that we respond to and handle them will determine whether we come out the other side an overcomer or whether we choose to turn around and give up altogether. 

In this episode of Jemima Davis TV - I will go over 4 ways of overcoming obstacles so you can be equipped to handle life's unplanned detours.

Overcoming Obstacles – 4 Ways to Handle Life’s Unplanned Detours

I don't know anyone who has not had to deal with obstacles in life.  

In fact they are part of the journey to success. 

What may appear as a roadblock in life could actually be an opportunity to take a different path that will ultimately lead you to the same destination. 

So let's discuss 4 ways of overcoming obstacles so you can handle life's unplanned detours.

Overcoming Obstacles #1 – Learn to practice acceptance

Do you wish to travel more but can't afford it?  

Do you desire a partner in your life, but you just have not met anyone? 

Are you waiting on an unanswered prayer?

Realize that you are on the road that you are meant to be. 

Could you have possibly been somewhere else other than where you are now? 


But when you plan strategically to turn right, life has a way of turning you left without warning. 

Fight to stay on the course to your destination even if the journey may look a little different than what you were expecting. 

Other paths may have taken you out altogether and so you are exactly where you need to be right now. 

Just keep moving forward.  

Overcoming Obstacles #2 – Learn to be okay with starting something new

The reason why you are getting NOs in a certain area is because it may be time for a change.  

It may be time for a pivot.  

The path that you are traveling on might have been a viable route in the past, but there is a dead end miles ahead that you cannot see. 

Newer paths exist that have caused your current way to become obsolete. 

Instead of holding on to what is familiar to you, it is best to keep an open mind and explore other avenues that can help you reach your destination.

Overcoming Obstacles #3 – Learn to ask for help from those who are further along

Why do we often feel that we need to travel this journey alone? 

We are in such a hurry to get to our destination, yet we don't have the roadmap to know how to get there. 

There are blind spots all around us, and we can't always see the obstacles that are in our way. 

Sometimes it is best to seek help from those further along who can guide us around the hazards that they have already gone through. 

They may even be able to provide us with the tools and the GPS so that we are properly equipped for the journey. 

As the proverb says,  "If you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go together."

Overcoming Obstacles #4 – Learn to walk away with a lesson

It is inevitable that obstacles will come in your life, so use every occurrence as a learning experience. 

Are you going to be bitter or better based on what you learned?  

What skills will you develop so that you can get different results in the future?  

As you gain more experience you will make better decisions on which path to take the next time there is a fork in the road.  

In Closing

Trust that life happens just as it should and that nothing prepares you for the unexpected.  

Though it is your responsibility to be equipped and surrounded by the right support system.  

Accepting the things you cannot change will help you to manage your disappointments and take obstacles or detours for what they are -- part of life.
