Successful people learn to treat roadblocks like just any other challenge. They see beyond the roadblocks to the destination they want to reach, and they think, calmly: “there has to be some way around this barrier.”
Successful people know anything worth doing will involve plenty of roadblocks, so they make overcoming roadblocks a core skill.
