Every day we are faced with situations and challenges, either in our own thought process or by those you interact with. But, are they actually "challenges" or "opportunities"? A difficult situation that seems like a negative could actually be an opportunity to learn, grow or see things in a different light!
So what differentiates a difficulty to be an opportunity? You, and only you....it is purely your perspective and attitude that will allow a difficult situation to become an opportunity. I believe that every situation is intended to be just that. If you lost your job, is it possible that there is an opportunity to find a more suitable job for you? If you lost a friendship, is it possible that there is an opportunity to spend your time with more quality people that are worthy of your friendship If your car breaks down on the highway, and your life goes "on hold" to deal with that, is it possible that it is an opportunity to experience the kindness of a stranger to help?
It is the moments of our life, and the difficulties we face, that are intended to guide us to a better life.
Although NONE of us can predict what lies ahead, we can all agree that life is FULL of "difficulties". If you view them as that, versus the opportunity that you may have to gain from that experience, it could be a spiral down motion. I prefer the spiral up motion, and I thank the challenges I have (and will) be faced with.....BRING IT ON !
