Every cloud has a silver lining

“My plans are ruined!” “What am I going to do now?” “Why did this have to happen?” These are our immediate reactions to every setbacks in our life. Its natural but disappointment should wear off immediately because you have a choice to make. Do not wallow in misery and dwell on the negative aspect of the situation but find the benefit or lesson that the problem at hand is offering.

Yes,you will probably face a period of uncertainty or struggle but there is always a flip side to the difficulty. A problem may not be a problem but an opportunity. A certain problem may come your way to show you an adjustment or change you can make to improve a certain condition in your life. Without the said problem,you would never have acknowledged the positive action.

Let see,a certain person has been fired from his or her job. This certain person goes on to start his or her business. The business becomes very successful and probably he or she is making more than what he or she used to make before. If we ask the said person ,he or she will testify that without been laid off,the business would never have been started. What started as an adversity ended up as a golden opportunity.

Be like an entrepreneur who sees opportunities everywhere he looks not like people who sees only problems everywhere they look.

Life isn’t perfect but we all have a chance,an opportunity or a right to embrace each new day to do many things. We can decide to make it a great day or we can simply squander it with pettiness,old grudges or dwelling on previous mistakes.

A lot of times,you see a situation that causes you the real problem. However,if you turn it around and see the problem as a challenge,you will also see that there is an opportunity right before your eyes. If you call it an opportunity instead of buckling under the loud of the word crisis tragedy or a disaster then you can start taking advantage of what has happened.

Effective people are not problems minded, they are opportunity skinned. They feed opportunities and starve problems. Be like entrepreneurs who is always on the lookout for problems that can be turned into opportunities and finds creative ways to leverage limited resources to reach there goals.

Do not get in the way by limiting the level of fulfilment,abundance and prosperity readily available to you through dispempowering thought and the company of emotions that go with them.

Remember,things that hurt, instruct.
