4 lessons I have learned about opportunities

This has been another inspiring week of learning for me.  I appreciate all of the thoughts that others have shared on this topic as well.

Here are the 4 main things that have stuck out for me as I have studied the principle of Life offers neither problems nor challenges, only opportunities

  1. We must look for the opportunity in every difficulty instead of being paralyzed at the thought of the difficulty in every opportunity
  2. Opportunities do require attention and work…and are sometimes hard.  It has been my experience however, that these “hard” opportunities provide the greatest lessons and rewards. 
  3. We must pay attention to the opportunity in EVERY situation.  
  4. We can truly create opportunities out of each and every situation we are presented with. By doing this problems and challenges truly leave us and we create a world of limitless opportunities.

I have also studied examples of people taking an assumed or perceived challenge and turning it into an opportunity.  This video is a great example of making an opportunity out of life.

How has this principle assisted you in your life?
