That's why many fail-because they don't get started-they don't go. They don't overcome inertia. They don't begin.

Make it an opportunity

It is easy to say that problems can be turned into opportunities. But how do you really make that happen? When a problem first appears, it never does seem like an opportunity. It usually is intimidating and overwhelming.So what turns a problem into an opportunity? Action. The quickest way to transform a problem into an opportunity is to do something about it. Take action. Go to work on the problem, and the opportunity will begin to reveal itself.Worrying and complaining will only make the problem worse. Action is what will improve the situation. Think back to all the challenges you’ve faced in the past, and to how your action changed them from negative to positive.Overwhelmed by a problem? Do something about it, and you’ll turn it into an opportunity.

— Ralph Marston
