Turn your obstacles into opportunities and your problems into possibilities.
~ Roy T. Bennet
We have great ideas and we make plans but it is never easy to achieve any great idea without great struggles, pain, sacrifice and suffering. To transform requires both a huge faith and lots of innovation. Its never about money or resources and its more about our faith and ability to focus on possibilities. While it is important to think positively, it is equally important to go beyond positive thinking, and to become aware of the possibilities in every situation, viewing life as more than a struggle to survive, but an exciting array of challenges and opportunities. It takes mental discipline to find the possibilities in a bad situation, but they are there. If we see the possibilities, we can view the situation in a more positive manner. By constructing more than one perspective or viewpoint, we can realize the potential in any situation, and open the door to greater flexibility and more constructive action. Possibility‑thinking starts with the conviction that you make a difference, that you are capable of doing greater and greater things. Searching for the possibilities sometimes involves the mental skill of finding options and possibilities that may be right under one’s nose. The simpler they are, the more likely they will elude us. These possibilities become apparent when we reconfigure our interpretation of a situation, or look at an old situation with new eyes, using a possibility thinking style. Opportunities will open up for you in amazing ways. Remember, consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
A thought, even a possibility, can shatter and transform us.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
