Look for the Opportunity

It is very easy to focus on what the problem is. However, every problem offers an opportunity. Hidden behind what seems to be a problem is actually an opportunity waiting to be discovered. Often, we will find whatever we look for. If we look for the problem, that is what we will find. Looking for the opportunity will offer the chance to discover new possibilities.


Behind every problem is an opportunity waiting to be discovered. Don’t let the problem sidetrack you. Look beyond the problem for the opportunity that is being offered. You might just discover something new and innovative that everyone else missed because they were focused on the problem.
