I don’t claim to know what hurdles are in front of you, but I do know that they are there.

It would be nice if the track ahead was smooth and without obstacles, but that’s rarely the case.

So what do you do with the hurdles in front of you?

Do you consider them too difficult, making them seem higher than they really are and giving up before you’ve really tried?

Do you run up to them and then when it’s time to leap, do you stutter and stop, fearing the consequences of not quite making it?

Or do you give it a go, knowing that a scraped knee will heal and understanding that you may not make it the first time, or perhaps even the second, but you will make it?

I don’t know what hurdles are in front of you.

But I do know the consequences of not trying.
