Crisis or Opportunity?
When we encounter a challenging situation, the perspective we take will plot the road ahead for us. Crisis takes with it the negative connotation that something bad happened, while opportunity takes the connotation that there is something positive ahead.
In recently encountering a challenging situation, my first response was conflict and crisis. That the experience was negative, the outcome was going to be unsatisfactory and it was filled with unwanted drama. Upon taking some time to reflect and review from a bird's eye perspective, I now see it as opportunity. Suze Orman just posted these exact same words of inspiration - that when a door closes a window opens - and I was inspired to write this blog post today to share the learning experience.
I hope when you are next faced with a challenge, you can see it as an opportunity as well.
