Hello dear readers, in @VirtualVariety we love to tell, relate and share those stories that leave us teaching, that leave us learning and reflecting, that's why we created this small section, where we will share a series of #ShortStory that somehow will remain engraved in our minds and hearts, we will start with one based on the obstacles, we hope you enjoy it.

The Obstacles In Our Path

  • A king placed a large rock in the middle of the road, blocking the way. He then hid to see if anyone would remove it.

  • The wealthiest merchants of the kingdom and some passing courtiers simply surrounded the rock. Many blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything to remove the obstacle.

  • Then came a peasant carrying a load of vegetables. He set it down on the ground and tried to move the rock to the side of the road. After much pushing and fatigue, he succeeded. As he picked up his load, he found a wallet on the ground, right where the rock had been. It contained many gold coins and a note from the king, indicating that this was the reward for whoever cleared the path.

  • The peasant learned what the others never understood.


Without a doubt life is full of obstacles, many of them intimidate us and even make us look for other alternatives, other paths, and for many that may be fine, however, it may be that by us diverting our route simply to not deal with those obstacles, we miss a great reward.

That is why we have to understand that obstacles are not bad, for better or for worse, they help us to forge ourselves in a better way, they help us to learn differently and they give us the greatest reward in the world, experience, to know how to deal with the obstacles of the future.

« I thank these beautiful people from the bottom of my heart for their support and dedication, if you still do not read any article about them or do not know them, we invite you to do so, it will be the best decision you've made in your life »


Life is not easy, however, we will always have the opportunity to choose, to decide how we will do or what options we will take. In this story, we see how this humble peasant thought of the benefit of all, without knowing it, he acted from his heart to move this obstacle, which prevented the free passage, while the wealthy ignored the rock and only criticized the king, this peasant, took courage and he alone moved that stone that was already becoming a hindrance, and his reward apart from that bag of gold, was the satisfaction that he could finish it even though he did not have all the tools.

And that same thing happens in daily life, we see obstacles, that many ignore, simply because of laziness of not wanting to deal more with those stones in their paths, we have two options to imitate them, or try to remove them to continue advancing, to continue achieving what we want, do not allow anything or anyone to get in your way, do not look for the easiest roads, do not run ahead of time, he who runs a lot, gets tired quickly and does not reach his finish line, he who runs a lot, gets tired quickly and does not reach his finish line, he who runs a lot, gets tired quickly and does not reach his finish line.


Hello, thanks for stopping by, we hope you liked this article, we know it is not the most perfect, but it is loaded with a lot of feelings, do not hesitate to give us a nice like and comment, we like to know the opinion of all of you.

I would like to relate it to pandemic. This is the biggest obstacle we are all facing and we have seen how others have been dealing with it. Not all have the capacity to do it. We should help and encourage others to keep going on.

What a great way to compare this story with this reality that we have, no doubt this Pandemic is a tremendous obstacle that we all have, but there are people as you mention that have managed to overcome them, overcome them, not all have the same strength or not all see life from the same perspective, but if we can help or guide so they can move forward and not try to deviate to other paths that in the end will only bring suffering, then let's do it, greetings and thanks for this amazing comment dear friend

What a great story to read this morning! Whether we like it or not, we will encounter difficulties in our lives and the way we deal with them will either bring us to new heights or keep us from our dreams.

My beautiful friend, I'm glad you liked it, it is very correct what you say, that decision we take to face each obstacle that appears can bring us closer or take us away, can reward us or take something away, greetings.

Nice lesson learnt from the story. Without a doubt life is full of so much obstacles, and many of them might even intimidate us or make us try to look for other alternatives. But our reactions to those obstacles matters a lot.

Oh yes, no doubt our reaction is important, because we can win or lose, depending on the choice we make regarding how we will face this obstacle.

Obstacles can be viewed in two lenses : blocker or opportunity. We can take our time unlocking an opportunity or going around the blocker. it is right to challenge one's self every once in a while and face obstacles head on.

Exactly my dear Pichi, in the end, we will be the only ones responsible for the results we get when we try to overcome or avoid that obstacle, greetings.

Obstacles are there to teach us a lesson, whether we face it or not still we get a lesson from it but the reward of doing something with that obstacle is really worth it
