Ryan Holiday wrote a book called “The Obstacle is the Way” to teach about using obstacles as a way to drive you forward rather than hold you back. Some obstacles that can be understood as catastrophes may be normal and only as bad as we think it to be. It is important to prepare for the worst, learn how to remain resilient and learn persistence. Another strategy is to think about what you can learn from the obstacle such as your inner strength and other ideas you can gain from the situation. Ryan Holiday states that learning from the experience is power over the situation and will is your internal power. “True will is quiet humility, resilience, and flexibility; the other kind of will is weakness disguised by bluster and ambition. See which lasts longer under the hardest of obstacles” by Ryan Holiday.
