What's the opportunity that this is?

What’s the opportunity that this is?

This is my ‘grounding question’ when I start to find things challenging/annoying/upsetting/frustrating. If I can’t find an answer, then I’m not trying hard enough and I’m being emotionally invested in a way that isn’t serving me.

Often times, the opportunity is a lesson to be learned or an opportunity for problem solving. 
When challenged to find an opportunity in a bleak situation, you can feel yourself evolving and levelling up. In retrospect, you don’t see a shitty situation you were upset by, you see the way you rose up to face it, and that comes with immense pride and a beaming little face.

Can you tell I was raised on Jack Canfield books?
