4 Questions Regarding Opportunity
Inspired by the teachings of Napoleon Hill: What opportunities are you seeking?
Would you recognize it when it comes?
This is such a crucial question to answer because most times opportunity presents itself in a different form than expected. Sometimes it is believed that opportunity is delivered on a silver platter or will be cast upon us as a stroke of good luck. Not so…
Opportunity is usually disguised as misfortune, defeat, or bad luck. Because of this, most people give up before they realize opportunity is staring them in the face. I believe that these “so-called” misfortunes, defeat, or bad luck is the best way to “wake up the sleeping giant” within each and every one of us! Everything has a silver lining, everything! It may not feel like it at the time while you are in the trenches, but every single “problem” has a silver lining.
My experience of dealing with cancer twice in my life could have definitely been perceived as misfortune, bad luck or defeat (if I allowed those thoughts to persist I wouldn’t be here right now). Gratefully, cancer has given me the opportunity to learn and grow in ways I couldn’t have imagined. This experience has also given me the opportunity to share Goodness Gracious with you! No one could have ever told me that cancer was an opportunity. I would have thought they were crazy!

What “so-called” misfortunes, defeat, or bad luck are you experiencing that can be reframed into opportunity?
I encourage you, please don’t stop short of that gold mine, you’re just inches away!
