Seeing Opportunities in Challenges
When faced with overwhelming bills, relationships difficulties, oppressive bosses, unreasonable clients, over booked schedules, never ending to-do list, aggressive people along our path or difficulties with health, are you viewing these as challenges or opportunities?
While most people would view these as difficulties or life altering events, shifting perspective can not only change how you feel about the situation, but also the outcome.
The world will offer to you, what you choose to see in it
If we ask ourselves “What am I supposed to learn here?” it shifts the energy of the situation. This moves us from a victim mentality of things happening to us, to one of opportunity, learning and growth. This simple question can change our world. We instantly become inquisitive about the the world around us and move from problem defining into problem solving. This empowering view is a process that you can get excited about. How can I shift the energy from where I am to where I want to be?
Reflecting on this phrase can change the energy of what we perceive is taking place, how we react to a given situation and more importantly, what can be learned as we become aware of the bigger picture and step outside of our individual pain or fear.
In the end, isn’t it all about our perception? Are we having a good life experience where we choose to see the positive in everything we are faced with, or one that is fraught with individualized fear & pain? Either way, it’s all a choice.
