Obstacles, although they have their disadvantages, can be used to benefit us in the future. We can either let obstacles stand in the way of our goals, or we can learn how to make it past them. Although obstacles seem to keep us from our successes, they can actually be turned into something positive.

Would this be a good introduction to a persuasive essay.

Prompt: Can obstacles be turned into something good.
