Today was a day when I hit a brick wall everywhere I turned.
Yeah, I’m in the mortgage business in the most heavily regulated environment that has ever existed, where customers and everyone involved in a transaction is suspected of some impropriety when it comes to getting a home mortgage.
I could have backed down.
Decided the wall was too big.
But I got out sledgehammer instead.
Started beating around the edges.
The I got a shovel and started testing the foundation.
Pieces came apart.
The brick wall began to falter.
Progress was made.
I learned to hit back in the days of our infertility.
Those days when it feels like a freakin’ brick wall is in your way, you are going to have to make a decision.
Turn away and decide that you can’t get past it.
That this is it and that wall is inpenetrable.
Or get a rope and climb over it.
Get a shovel and dig under it
Get a Howitzer and blow it apart.
I can guarantee you, what’s waiting on the other side, is worth the fight.
