It’s an opportunity

The obstacle you encounter is not just something that gets in your way. It’s an opportunity.

The beauty you see is not merely there to be admired. It represents an opportunity.

This is not just another hour, another trip, another situation. It’s an opportunity to live with purpose, with effectiveness, with joy, gratitude, and love.

Whatever form it takes, see the opportunity. Take the opportunity to act, to speak, to learn, to improve, to understand.

Appreciate the opportunities and they return the favor. The more opportunities you make good use of, the more and better opportunities there will be.

Whatever place you go, whatever thing you see, whatever is going on, it’s an opportunity. Make it your business to make good and lasting value from it.

— Ralph Marston
