Motivational Quote - Difficulty is an opportunity in disguise.

SparkPeople's Comments

Your mindset can often make or break your progress. In the face of a challenge, it's important to think positively! The next time you come across a difficult challenge, remind yourself that it is simply an opportunity to prove yourself and grow from the experience. If we didn't have challenges, our lives would be pretty boring! Face each difficulty head-on and try to see the lesson in every situation.

My difficulty was serious health problems that led to physical therapy. My PT wanted half of my sessions to be in a mini-pool. Most of my life, whether thin or fat, I hated pool activities. So it took facing my anxiety to try a pool experience again and I loved it, ankle weights and all. This opportunity led to my opting to go to the YMCA's big pool on a day pass to attend 2 water aerobics classes, yesterday. Fun, fun, fun, even though I was physically challenged. I never would have gone to those classes and commit to continuing to go to them, if I had not endured my health problems.

This one is a lesson for all of us to learn.

I think we learn the most when we are in difficulties since all our senses are on alert. As I look back over my life it was during times of great stress that I felt the closest to God and learned the most about myself, others, and Him.

I love the theme of positive thinking/self talk I have received from several SparkPeople resources today!

Difficulty=opportunity, is a reminder that "all things work together for good to those who love the LORD." GOD's strenght is manifested in our weakness!
