Ep #98: How Obstacles Become Opportunities

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | How Your Obstacles Reveal Opportunities

Think about the obstacles you currently face in your life and practice. What are the goals that you aren’t making progress towards and why? Is it a lack of time or resources? Maybe it’s a difficult relationship in your life, not getting the level of support you want and need, or simply feeling exhausted. 


We usually think of obstacles as problems that get in the way of where we want to go. We’re told that things should be easy, and if they’re not, something is wrong. You might be waiting for the stars to align for a time when there are no longer any obstacles in your way, but the hard truth is that obstacles are here to stay. Let’s find a way to change the way you relate to obstacles. 


Join me this week to discover how you can use obstacles as opportunities for learning and growth. I’m sharing two strategies that will help you stop avoiding them so you can start getting closer to your goals right now, and start seeing obstacles as something to anticipate and maybe even look forward to.


I have created a group coaching program dedicated to supporting women lawyers, just like you, in your practice and your personal life. I’m going to help you create an even greater impact in your own life, and the lives of those around you. For more information, send me an email!
