How To Turn Your Obstacles Into Opportunities

Many times in my life I have been surprised by an obstacle that seemed insurmountable. The problem would just side swipe me, and I would feel like my life was over, but then the thing that I thought was a curse turned out to be one of the biggest blessing. I would be presented with an opportunity that I didn't know that I needed.

I want you to be open to the possibility that whatever is standing in your way right now might be the best thing that could happen to you. You don't know what is on the other side of it, but it doesn't mean it will be bad. When we are in the thick of trying to overcome our challenges, we tend to forget all of the times in our past when we were able to do exactly what we couldn't see how to do. We were able to find a solution and make it through to a better place. If we allow ourselves to become overwhelmed by what is in front of us, we put ourselves into a state where we can't see any solutions, but if you can remember back before you knew how things were going to turn out for you, when you just kept moving forward, there was always something waiting for you on the other side. Here are a few questions to wrestle with if you are on #NguzoSabaChallenge:

Do you have any stories of being side swiped by an obstacle and it turning out to be a blessing?

How have you overcome the biggest obstacle in your life?

What are some of the biggest challenges you've had to overcome in your life?

What was the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome? (Be Honest)

What have you learned from a life experience that has taught you the most about yourself?

If you could go back to any time in your life, would you change anything? If so What?

There is something for us all to gain from staying open to the possibility that our challenges could actually be opportunities in disguise. Take a moment to reflect on what is holding you back at this moment and remind yourself that your obstacle might actually be an opportunity. This small shift in thinking can change your life and lead you towards some incredible possibilities. Here are a few tips from GNJMedia that can help you:

1. Be open to the universe's plan for you, stop fighting it

2. Try to understand the things happening and why they are happening

3. Try to listen and understand the obstacles role in your life

4. Don't let negative thoughts get you down, work on having positive thoughts to overcome them

5. Talk to other people who have been where you are now, get their perspective

Here is your proverb:

"When the shadow of a tree is bent, straighten the tree, not the shadow."
