Lessons From A Corn Maze

Photo by Jessica Hanson
Have you ever been stuck
In a corn maze--
Unable to find your way out?
Or how about trapped along the path of life...
This year corn mazes are dotting 
The Colorado prairie lands.
Farmers have turned their corn fields
Into money-making ventures
And families are flocking there for fun.

While it's fun rushing in and out
Up and down
The crooked paths
Of corn rows
It is no fun getting trapped
On the path of life.

An inspiring example of someone
Who was stuck
And found his way out
Is Dr. Ben Carson.
Dr. Ben Carson
 What a ray of hope and inspiration
He has been for many
Including me.
In "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story"
Dr. Carson encourages:

“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles,
But by your reaction to them.
And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence,
They become your excuse for failure.
If you look at them as a hurdle,
Each one strengthens you for the next.”
If Dr. Ben Carson
Formerly "the dumbest kid in the class"
Who had mega obstacles in his path
Can find
Peace,purpose and remarkable success--
So can you!
