Obstacle Illusion

One of the young people I mentor opened my eyes to the fact that something which I was having a very difficult time overcoming was not nearly as challenging as I was making it out to be.  In the process of solving this complex (in my mind) problem, we came up with a new (in my mind) term for my inability to see past my own perceived limitations.  I was suffering from what we call an "OBSTACLE ILLUSION".  The obstacle was not real but I had created it in my mind and the illusion of a non-existent challenge prevented me from solving the problem.

My advice to you - don't let "OBSTACLE ILLUSIONS" prevent you from reaching your goals.
