To be an effective leader, you not only have to get the group of followers on the right path, but you must be able to convince them that whatever obstacle stands in the way ahead, whether it’s a tree or a building that blocks the view, you’re going to get around it.  You’re not going to be put off by the apparent barriers to your goal.  All journeys are filled with potholes and mines, but the only way we can move beyond them is to approach them, and recognize them for what they are.  You have to see that it’s only a tree, or whatever, and it’s not insurmountable.  Everywhere you trip is where the treasure lies.
