Opportunities always hide themselves in your struggles
Five years ago I was having lunch with a few of my friends and one of our friends had just started a new job and it was not going well. He told us how his boss and all team were treating him. He spoke about how he was looking forward to starting a new job after working so hard at university but everything was falling apart now. We had never seen him that emotional, he put his head on the table and then of sudden….. Oh my goodness me! This is an opportunity he shouted. If only can improve my public speaking skills and presentation skills I can teach organizations how to treat employees better. Fast forward five years later, my friend has been training businesses across the world for the last three years, he is very successful and still has a long way to go.
A lot of times when we go through difficulties we always focus on how difficult things are. The truth is the people who succeed in life are those who look for opportunities where other people see difficulties. Every experience teaches us something, my friend told me that every experience can be good or bad for you depending on what you think about the situation. Last week after a very bad week I asked myself what I learnt from the week and ended up with a list of twenty things I had learnt. If you are going through a difficult time at the moment, I want to take just ten minute and write anything that is good about that situation. Remember, it not what happens to us that determines our Destiney but it’s how we respond to wat happens to us that determines our Destiney.
