The obstacle is the way

I really enjoyed a book this week by Ryan Holiday, it is called ‘The Obstacle Is the way’ A stoic view of life from an author who believes we give up too easily. He believes with a simple change of attitude, and what seems like insurmountable obstacles become once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Give it a read you will enjoy it I think. I loved this quote and wanted to share:

Problems are rarely as bad as we think – or rather, they are precisely as bad as we think. It’s a huge step forward to realize that the worst thing to happen is never the event, but the event and losing your head. Because then you’ll have two problems (one of them unnecessary and post hoc)
