“Each problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.”
Joseph Sugarman – Marketing Expert
My initial reaction when I read this quote, albeit quickly and on the fly, was one of detached agreement. Yeah… I get it and believe it. Like a million other thoughts in my day, it left as quickly as it came.
However, the power comes when you spend time deeply absorbing the message by re-reading with intention and an open mind. It’s a message of the power of personal choice when we choose to see opportunity and embrace challenge as a vehicle or route to obtain that opportunity.
We all have the choice, personally and professionally, to turn stressors, challenges, and roadblocks into win/win solutions. Looking at issues with the mindset of creating a great opportunity is a choice that starts with how we choose to think about it. Choose Well!
