Of Obstacles and Opportunities

When your fate sends you trouble- a change of fortune, a negative turn of events, an injustice, a lost cause- immediately become alert, for the opportunity is in the obstacle. An O for an O. Don’t so quickly cede defeat. Look for the opportunity, wait for it to emerge from the rubble of the bad news of defeat.

Should you be gifted with a greater intelligence or insight capacity, use the obstacle or loss as a prompt to root our negativity and despair, and to plant opposite responsive virtues in place of your anxious inclinations.


If this also fails seek a wise mentor to paint out what you are yet incapable of seeing.
