    Is this sentence correct - missing articles?

    Hello all.

    Would it be possible to look at one sentence and decide whether it is correct or not?

    I am not sure whether there should be an article after "bigger" . I also hesitate to use "to" after "facing".
    Thank you for your help




    The bigger (an?) obstacle I am facing (to?), the bigger my motivation is not to give up.

    There should be an article after "bigger", but it should be "the". There should be no "to" after "facing". I have changed the word order at the end.

    The bigger the obstacle I am facing, the bigger is my motivation not to give up.
