A lot of things will happen to you this week. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be horrible.
The question is whether or not you’ll spend all of your time reacting to those things. Or will you create opportunities out of those things.
The greatest stories we hear are stories about how something horrible happened to someone and he or she responded as if that horrible occurrence created an opportunity – not just emotional stress.
When something good happens to you this week, consider how you can leverage that good thing for even more good things – for you or for those you love or for those you work with.
When something bad happens to you this week, consider how you can create an opportunity out of that thing vs. simply emotionally reacting to it.
Those of you who have a more cynical bent might think this idea is silly. I implore you to give it a shot. (a) It can’t hurt – the thing happened anyway. (b) You might find those who love you will be pleasantly surprised.
So create something wonderful. Don’t just react as if you have absolutely no power. You do have a smidge of power. Use it.
