Do you have problems? Problems that are preventing you from taking the next step in your life? If you are like most people. Chances are the answer is yes.
These problems could be anywhere. They could be at work, at home, at play. It doesn’t matter where they reside. It doesn’t even matter how long you’ve had them. What matters the most though is how you handle them.
Think about this. Yesterday’s problems are tomorrow’s opportunities, and the only difference between what you faced yesterday and what you will face tomorrow is your mindset. Your mindset allows you to put your problems through the ultimate transformation process! What you see in your past and what you will see in your future all depends on your mindset.
An opportunistic mindset is one that you are not simply born with. You have to train your mind to detect the minute opportunities within the problems we encounter. And the beauty of it is that the opportunities you detect don’t always have to be for you. It could be for someone else. All problems exist for someone to solve. All opportunities exists for someone to benefit. That someone could be ourselves, our friends, family, or even someone we haven’t even met at this point in our lives.
Opportunity can be defined as a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something. Problem is defined as any question or matter involving doubt, uncertainty, or difficulty. Thus, if we look at these two definitions, we see how they easily coexist. We see that we can’t have an opportunity without first having a problem.
Whenever we encounter a problem, if you notice closely, it’s primarily always due to the lack of something. For example, lack of time, lack of money, or lack of knowledge. But understand that with each problem comes the opportunity for you to gain more time, by increasing your time management skills. For the lack of money, comes the opportunity to increase your ability to earn money in other ways than what you are accustomed. For the lack of knowledge brings the opportunity for you to learn more things to become proficient in your job, save your marriage, or grow your business.
As humans we get in the mindset of focusing on our problems more so than the opportunities that are presented within the problem. Whatever we focus on, tends to grow bigger and bigger. That’s why it’s critical to develop an opportunistic mindset.
Inspired Vision’s Point of Power: Problems and opportunities are so closely related, they could pass for husband and wife. When you say I have a Problem, you’re saying I DO to the Opportunity.
