For more than a decade, it has been my custom to produce an original writing for my friends in celebration of my birthday. My gift to you this year is based on this concept:

You’ll Find A Way

It is my belief and observation that intention is senior to any obstacle.
A clear, unambiguous decision, free from doubt, wedded with the willingness to face anything, combined with a healthy dose of persistence and with a bit of luck, and you can accomplish anything.
What is the secret?
It’s simple: Just keep your attention on the goal, in spite of all invitations to do otherwise.
Of course, you’ll run into barriers on the road to accomplishment. But that doesn’t mean you have to pay more attention to them than on what you’re really trying to do.
You tend to create what you keep your attention on – whether it be the goal or the barrier. Why not just continue to create the goal, and let the distractions fall by the wayside?
Absent your attention, obstacles tend to weaken and fade away anyway, leaving you free to move on toward attaining what you want.
You can always find a way – if that it is what you’re really looking for.
