Is your life like peeling an orange? What road blocks do you put in front of yourself?
I was standing in my kitchen this morning looking for something to eat. I saw an orange. It was just calling my name, the orange color was so inviting. My mouth was watering with the memory of what it tastes like. Oh I love oranges.
But I hesitated! Why?
You look at the Orange and say “do I have time to peel it eat it, get my hands all dirty”, and all these things were going through my mind.
It was a roadblock!
Why was I so hesitant?
I wanted the orange, I knew it was going to taste good and it was good for me. Why did I create that roadblock?
Are there roadblocks that you put in front of your life?
That is what got me thinking. I was holding myself back and the dirty hand feeling was standing in my way.
You know that’s what life is like when we think about going after something. How many times have you put up roadblocks? The kind of revelations of where we’re going. Do we get in our mind where we’re going to head, and overthink what there is and what will happen?
Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally. David Frost
Our minds think “What is it going to be like“, and we stop ourselves.

How is your life going to be today? What roadblocks do we create ourselves?
What’s your life going to aim at?
My point of this story isn’t about the orange that I wanted to share, it is that we can change the way we think. We can set ourselves up for failure, or we can set ourselves up for success.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. Vince Lombardi
As long as we have a goal in front of us and we point to that goal, we’re going to get there no matter what!
So don’t worry about that orange empowering you, eat it and then keep going, wash your hands, and then with your goals in front of you, you have to push through the things that you might not like.
I heard a speaker talk about aiming for what it is that you really want. It wasn’t so much as aiming, it was more about firing! You can adjust where you hit the target as you go along.
Shoot, Fire, Aim
Make it a journey to give. Like peeling that orange. And you will get it back tenfold. Like tasting its sweet goodness.
When you hesitate or put up roadblocks, you lose! The orange will not sit there on your counter and wait for you! It will spoil and you have lost out.
Let’s all step forward from the things that are holding you back.
Where are you going?
What road blocks have you put in your own path?
