Some people have a little flame that goes off from time to time: A moment of inspiration or a burst of enthusiasm. However, these flames are often too fragile and the smallest breath of wind ends up extinguishing their flame.
Others have a fire. A raging fire that can’t be controlled or hampered in any way. If anything gets in their way, then just like an out of control forest fire, the obstacle becomes their fuel.
The obstacle isn’t there to stop you, it’s actually showing you the way forward.
