Awaken Your Day - That which does not encourage me, Can make me stronger. June 2, 2010

"What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude toward it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity."
- J. Sidlow Baxter

Books upon books upon books have said it.
You can spell it out in a vast array of expressions.
It is not what we encounter or what happens to us, it is how we respond.
A difficult time or obstacle can stop you, or it can spur you on.
You can feel defeated and surrender more valuable energy,
Or you can see reason in the moment, grasp it like a "How Not To" manual and overcome the moment as you move past it with new knowledge and awareness.

The taste of the victory will be much sweeter when you have the sense of accomplishment to reflect on. It is not the mountain we still have to climb that we need concentrate on, it is the victory of the steps we have successfully taken.

I look off into the distance to my goal...it is a journey away. I take a step. I look up again, and I realize... it is closer than the last time.

Opportunity is much like inspiration...it can find you anywhere...as long as you are open to accept it.

Good Morning.
Pierre Couturier
