“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
– Winston Churchill
It’s true – as we go through life, opportunities arise every day (although they can often be disguised as adversity, setbacks, or failure.) Our perception of those opportunities will often drive what we do with them. Do we forge ahead, throwing caution to the wind? Do we turn down the opportunity for reasons of comfort, convenience or conviction? Or do we miss seeing the opportunity in the first place because of bitterness, anger, and resentment?
