The possible balance between dreams and obstacles

We can dream and think positively, but at the same time we must consider the obstacles we face in reaching our goals and for each of them we must have a solution.

The key words of this new approach are: in order to achieve relevant goals, individuals must anticipate the obstacles that stand in the way of achieving them.

Identifying obstacles for the future is useful for two reasons. First, if the number of obstacles standing in the way is too large, then it can actually help people make effective decisions about when they should give up on a goal.

Second, when the obstacles are potentially manageable, then contrasting the present with the future gives people an opportunity to plan for how to overcome the obstacles that arise.
