There are many pathways to success, happiness, and fulfillment, and the right path may be different for each person. There are, however, some actions all of us can take along the way that will boost our chances of getting where we most want to go.

This week's Fulfillment Tips offers four suggestions that can make your journey less rocky and help you deal with any obstacles you encounter. Read on, and you'll learn about using preparation, fear, intuition, and acceptance as tools to reach your goals faster.

Have an obstacle-free week,



(1) Tempered action with right preparation.

Do your homework and be prepared. It won't ensure smooth sailing in every circustance, but you will face fewer challenges when you move forward from a place of preparation. And, when you take the necessary time to prepare before taking action, you will more often make the right decisions so that you can overcome the obstacles in your way.

(2) Lean into your fears

Instead of shrinking from something you fear, think past those fears. You might be surprised at the fresh, new ideas that arise. Take the risk of implementing some of those ideas and you're likely to enjoy greater visibility and success at work. Each day, deliberately set your fears aside, refocus on a positive vision of your possible future, and take an action that will transform your perspective.

(3) Use your intuition

Develop self-trust and allow your intuition (or gut feeling) to help you navigate through uncharted terrain. Education and experience can certainly help you make strong, informed decisions. But by adding intuition to the mix, you'll experience greater success almost every time.

(4) Embrace your current work situation

Realize that the work you are currently doing serves a useful purpose, whether or not you are satisfied with the work. When you're feeling frustrated in your current circumstances, ask youself, "What is the lesson being presented for me to embrace and transform?"


The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope.
~ Barbara Kinsolver

Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to a stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind.
~ Leonardo da Vinci

You may not have started out life in the best of circumstances. But if you can find a mission in life worth working for and believe in yourself, nothing can stop you from achieving success.
~ Kemmons Wilson
