Brick Walls

Brick walls.

Brick walls can be decorative, such as one seen in a botanical garden.

Brick walls can be functional, such as one on a roadway shoulder.

Brick walls can be for security such as ones that surrounded ancient cities to keep their enemies out.

Likewise emotional brick walls are erected when we want to keep others out.

Additionally, brick walls can be barriers that prevent us from accomplishing our goal(s).

So…how do we break through the brick walls that keep us from being successful?


C – Clearly define your goal(s)
L – List barriers to accomplishing your goal(s)
I – Investigate your options
M – Manage & prioritize your options
B – Begin the climb over the wall
I – Improve upon your strategies
N – Negotiate what can be accomplished and let go of what cannot
G – Give it to God

Climb diligently with purpose.

Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run;
hurry and scurry puts you further behind.
Proverbs 21:5 (MSG)

I love this brick wall photo. “Fra me” in Italian means “between me”…

So my friend, ask yourself, “What brick wall is between me and my goal(s)?”

The brick walls aren’t there to keep us out, the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. R Pausch
