Many are the challenges we go through almost on a daily basis. This is true whether you’re a leader or not (though, to me, everyone is a leader: especially beginning with Self-Leadership). But there’s one thing we forget almost in all of those situations. We often forget to remember that in all, Happiness is a matter of CHOICE not chance.
A friend of mine once told me that things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out! Failure and success – or losing and winning – are all affected by our attitudes. In fact, The Good Book says that as a man thinketh, so he is!
Today, realize that in every crisis, there’s an opportunity. But do we have the patience to give it a second thought so we can see the opportunity therein?
Many have found gold in the garbage while many others have been able to spot some garbage in a heap of pure gold. Now that it is up to you either to see rain as a source of mud or a clearer of dust, which direction shall you take? To say the glass is half full or half empty?
This is what will make the difference in your whole life! This is what differentiates difference-making leaders from indifferent leaders! Think right. View things from the right angle. Fish out the positive, even when the negative seem to flood your life like a tsunami.
Whenever a challenge comes your way, remember: It is a matter of choice. You can take it as a crisis and run away from it, or as an opportunity and utilize it for further growth and advancement.
