“In order to move through or around a challenge, we have to expand to see that challenge as an opportunity.”
I’ve often heard that it is all about perspective in how we see things. In other words it is our own decisions to look at challenges as opportunities. That is how Founder of the Coaching and Positive Psychology (CaPP) Institute Valerie Burton views it in today’s quote. We will always have challenges before us and some might be more daunting than others.
Remember that our mind is very powerful and can cause us to think that these challenges are impossible to overcome if we let it. It is important to face each challenge as more of an opportunity to do something wonderful that may impact others. In fact who knows? It may even impact the world which would be an awesome way of look at things.
Our decision making skills are just as important in choosing how we see challenges that lay before us just as much as any decision we get to make in life. In order to for choose to the best path for us, we need to decide to look at the opportunities that are in those challenges in order to have a better tomorrow.
