Problem or Opportunity

Replace the word ‘problem’ with ‘opportunity’ and see what good things will happen.   Obstacles are simply opportunities for growth and growth is never easy-but it’s always worth it.

We all have problems. We all have obstacles in our way that we must figure out how to navigate around.   Too many times we give up when we are faced with something negative. Don’t give up! Keep moving forward. You’re going to face hurdles, roadblocks and mountains that are in your path. Don’t let them discourage you. Just keep moving forward, because if you’re moving forward you’re making progress. Some days the progress will be small, but even if it’s a tiny baby step forward it’s still a step in the right direction.

Remember, slow progress is still progress! Click To Tweet

In every problem, we get to decide how we are going to respond to it.  Decide that you will use your problems as opportunities for growth, to expand your thinking, to find new ways of doing things.  Decide you will use your problems to motivate you and inspire you, never to defeat you.

The human spirit is powerful! You’re spirit is powerful, and your will and determination will get you to where you want to go. Whatever obstacles you’re facing today, know that you CAN and you WILL find a way to keep moving forward. The most successful people have all had obstacles to overcome. No one has an easy road to greatness. Once you start down that road to greatness, keep moving! Don’t give up!  No pain, no obstacle, no hurdle is going to keep you from reaching your goal. You either use your pain to propel you forward, or you allow your pain to defeat you.

Charles Swindoll says, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it.”  A part of dealing with problems in a positive way simply depends on your perspective.  If you can’t change your situation, change your perspective.

If you can't change your situation, change your perspective and things will begin to change. Click To Tweet

No one who wants to be successful has a problem-free life!  Expect the problems, know they will come, and get ready to seize the opportunity that comes with them!  The alternative is to get down and negative and complain how unfair it is, and that will get you nowhere!   Seize the opportunities today, and use each problem you face to get you one step closer to success!
