Obstacles are your friends. They help you identify those areas that are holding you back, things which you need to overcome and potentially even those things that you need to re-think and/or re-strategize about.
The good news about obstacles is that they are usually something you can overcome. And if not overcome, then at the very least strategize about ways to get around them. Even if they appear to be ‘mountains,’ they are usually not that high. (In this world, there is only one Mt. Everest, but many other nameless hills.) And if they are too high for you to leap over? Simply figure out how to get around them.
