How to Deal with Obstacles

For every failure, there’s an alternative course of action.
You just have to find it. When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.

Whenever you confront an obstacle or run into a roadblock, you need to stop and brainstorm three ways to get around, over, or through the block. For every obstacle, come up with three different strategies for handling the potential obstacle. There are any number of ways that will work, but you will find them only if you spend time looking for them. Always be solution-oriented in your thinking.
Persevere until you find a way that works. Dificulties are opportunities to better things; they are stepping-stones to greater experience….

When one door closes, another always opens; as a natural law it has to, to balance.
