Turn Obstacles Into Opportunities

Throughout life everyone encounters obstacles of various kinds.  No matter what your situation may be, you will find that there will be times that life will challenge you.  Some will be simple and easy to resolve, and others will hit you right through to the core…  The difference in all these situations is how each person as an individual responds…

 

Our response to whatever occurs in our life is our choice.  We can decide to react in a way that is in our best interest or we can feed the situation.  Ultimately we must understand, in all of this, what are we really going to gain from the situation…  About now I get the feeling you are most probably thinking I am absolutely crazy…  Yes maybe I am but  when I realised that if I looked at obstacles as opportunities to be gained in life it changed everything…

 

For me it meant discovering what I really want in my life and the situations I don’t want either.  It showed me what strategies are of value to us and the ones that had no value as they did not assist us in the way we needed them to.  It has taught me that when things are rough that out the other side you will discover something new, gain a reminder or be able to see how far you have really come on this journey.  It meant that I was able to change my mindset as I was discovering the positive in every negative, which meant becoming an optimist rather than a pessimist as I was following my intuition rather than my ego… Yes there is so much to be gained from this…

 

The amazing part of all this is that it has not just had an impact on what I do with our son it changes the way you perceive everything in your life.  It allows you to be open to new things, you become teachable and more focused in becoming the best version of you that you can possibly be with a wealth of knowledge and tools that you have gained from your own experiences, which allows you the opportunity to blossom and grow beyond what you may have ever believed would be possible…

 

What does this mean for you ? Well that choice is yours – you can join me on this amazing path where turning obstacles into opportunities has become a way of life or you can stay where you are and wonder about all the possibilities that  you could have.  I know which one I would choose…
