Flowing Through Adversity Like Water

“Flow like pure water through difficult situations.” 

Flowing Water - 100PedalsIn the face of challenging or difficult situations, the best course of action is to act like water.  Think of the path that water takes on its journey as it passes over rocks, finds a path around formidable obstacles, discovers crevices or cracks to keep it moving, and relaxes and recovers by forming deep pools to collect itself.

As our journey offers similar forms of challenges, obstacles and opportunities, we could accomplish a great deal by taking the same approach water does on its course, .  In the face of a challenge, it is much more productive to maintain positive and peaceful energy.  Flow with the adversity, much as water flows.

The path to accomplishment is most powerful and productive when we keep moving and  flowing forward in a positive, confident manner.  Even though the pace of that movement may be slowed or altered by obstacles,  it is up to us to maintain our positive energy and discover a path that keeps us moving,  The three successful mindsets are: stay positive and confident, embrace the lessons that exist in the obstacle, and keep moving with confidence and clarity.

Just as water flows peacefully and continuously on its defined course, so too can you move peacefully and confidently on yours.
