The next time you’re facing a problem or a challenge in your life, don’t ask yourself “how can I solve or overcome this?” Instead, ask yourself “how can I use this to my advantage?”
Hidden inside each challenge is an opportunity for something positive, that’s almost always bigger in size than the problem itself, and often much bigger. So if you get through a challenge and afterwards your life continues exactly as normal, it means you’ve wasted the opportunity.
This is why they say you fail your way to success. If you use every failure as an opportunity to grow or move forward in some way, sooner or later you reach success. But if you just solve problems and move on the same as before, you stay at the same level forever!
So never beat yourself up over your failures, they’re too valuable to look down upon. They are the Yin to the Yang of your success. Instead, welcome them as the necessary steps to success that they are!
