The most difficult thing in achieving goals

“The brick walls are there for a reason. 
The brick walls are not there to keep us out. 
The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. 
Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. 
They’re there to stop the other people.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

The obstacles are there to stop the other people...
Think about that a little.

So... are you "the other people"?

Terry Pratchett talked about the village smith who could shoe anything. Once he shoes a flee, or some other insect.
The secret of being able to shoe anything is TO SHOE ANYTHING.
You find a way, and while doing that, you learn how to do it.

So - the only REAL obstacle is in your head. The little voice telling you you can't. You need to replace it with the Little Engine That Could. "I think I can, I know I can, I knew I could..."

And break it into small steps. Chart the road and take it in tiny steps, and remember to enjoy the view on the road :-D

And here's how to get from no splits to splits :-) Millions of people do it every day. You can, too.
