The goal is to use "the good" and "the positive" as a foundation while upgrading our mindset to an "opportunity" outlook. In other words, the goal is to pre-program ourselves to seek actionable opportunity that helps achieve our life goals. Approaching situations pre-programmed to seek opportunity means we arrive with an dynamic mindset ready to jump in and get something done.
One helpful tool to upgrade our mindset is to consistently ask, "What is the opportunity here?" In all situations, positive and negative, opportunity always exists. The challenge is whether or not we're able to recognize opportunity and act. We become more effective in achieving our goals if we train and pre-program ourselves to seek opportunity in all situations; especially in moments of frustration, depression, anger, fear, and confusion.
We can be positive all day long but if there's no accompanying action which improves our lives, then what's the point? Be bold. Let's upgrade our game. Recognize "the positive" and "the good" but go further. Focus on actionable opportunity.
