Obstacles make you think outside the square

by Glenise Anderson


 I had an interesting thing happen to me yesterday.
My dear husband who usually says "whatever makes you happy Darling" said an adamant "No!" to something I wanted to do!  Shock, horror... it's probably lucky I was sitting down at the time!!
It was a interesting comment, followed by "I'm your reality check" or something along those lines.  I don't think I actually heard the words clearly because there was this loud noise sounding in my head (perhaps a scream!).  It came with a mildly uncomfortable feeling attached to it.
Hmmm, what to do, what to do? I thought when I hung up the phone.
It all revolves around a product I am currently creating for the marketplace and the high standard I want to complete it to.  Are there cheaper options - absolutely... Do I want to use them... not really!  And therein lies my dilemma.
Hmmm, what to do, what to do??
Back to the drawing board I thought - what was my objective?  Well, ideally I wanted to roll out this concept & product with my new rebranding and website - altogether.  I didn't want to approach companies until everything was in place.
The reality check - that's not going to happen!  The reality is - I have to back myself, have faith that all will work out (and of course it always does - one way or the other!) and get out there and do it!.
So troops - I'm biting the bullet.  It's time to start talking to people and letting them know what I'm doing. 
I have created a 12 month Personal Development Program for Women in the Workplace.  It is initially targeted at companies although hopefully within a relatively short space in time I will have a standalone product for individual women - that's where the NO came in :(.  It will cover skills such as Time Management, Goal Setting, Identifying your Strengths, Procrastination etc.
So there you go.  If you know someone who may be interested, let me know and I can send you more information.
So this week... think about the dream/s YOU'RE not acting on.  Is it because an obstacle has come up that's stopped your progress?  If so, think outside the square - ask yourself quality questions like "How CAN I make this happens?"
