The Last Lecture: Brick Walls

"The brick walls are there to stop people who don't want it badly enough. They're there to stop the other people."

Randy Pausch didn't see walls as an obstacle, he saw it as a challenge. A way to prove how much he wanted what was on the other side. Do agree with him? What "walls" have you come across in your life? Were you able to break through them? If so, how?


  1. Obstacle for sure.........
    Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
    --Anais Nin

  2. I guess my brick walls have been certain aspects of my own upbringing; realizing that I've been conditioned to believe that there are things that I cannot do. Growing up thinking that I'm "too fragile," weak or not good enough to accomplish my goals. And then once I am successful, I feel guilty about it! I constantly undermine my own hard work and belittle the progress I've made over the years.

    So I guess my challenge has been unlearning some things my mother taught me so it doesn't keep blocking my way.
