Our Problems Are An Opportunity For Growth



“Each problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.” – Joseph Sugarman

Did you know that the inventor of the “post-it” note Art Fry, was following up on an experiment of his 3M colleague Spencer Silver whose experiment to find a substance that was more binding than super-glue, had failed? Although the initial experiment failed a most useful application of the substance Spencer invented was achieved by Art.

Are you one of those people who see the possibilities that surround the so called “failures” of your life? Are you someone who can see that your problems can become an opportunity for growth and more than that the beginning of an amazing triumph within your life?

In a dualistic universe, for every down there has to be an up, forever negative there has to be a positive, for every problem there has to be a solution. However, to be able to see things differently you will first have to change your thinking. The logic and reasoning that bring us to our problems is not the kind of thinking that will help us find the solution.
