How to deal with road blocks when chasing your dream

It's no secret I adore sports, especially in the summer. This year we have Wimbledon, the Tour de France and the Olympics Games. I just read a quote from LoLo Jones, the track and field star, in US Magazine, "I use the downs to propel me for the ups. Hurdles aren't road blocks to me, they're opportunities."
At first I scoffed when reading this quote because sometimes the road blocks to our dream can be quite disheartening. However, they are beneficial. They strengthen your resolve.

Let's face it, our talent is something that will ebb and flow. One day you will be on top and the next you could be sinking. These plateaus are vital while chasing our dream because they remind us why we want our dream. We can't treat the rejections as anything more than an opportunity.

You're gonna go places my friends. Never forget your dream is gonna help people.
