A set-up in disguise, because your buts and ifs are preventing you from fulfilling your God-given purpose in life—you need some kick in the butt, accompanied by worry, fear, and pain, to move you out of your comfort zone and complacency.
We all hate setbacks in whatever forms they appear, but without them, we’ll never grow to be who we are in making a dent in this universe.

Something that sets you back. It keeps you from doing something and can cause great inconvenience to someones life. A setback may just knock you off your time schedule or it could be stopping you from doing something you drastically need to do. Setbacks are not good, most of the time...
"I really must get my sculpture finished today, but I don't have enough resources to finishes it. That means I'm gonna have to go out and buy some then I'll be off my time schedule. Dang!"

(^^^Not having enough resources to finish his/her sculpture was this persons setback)
