“Call her, beep her, if you want to reach her….” I was watching T.V.with my 6-year-old son today. We were watching Kim Possible. For those of you that don't have the chance to watch a number of cartoons, Kim Possible is a a high-school girl that also saves the world. “Nothing is impossible for a Possible.“
So, why would I bring this up? Well, you can learn from some cartoons if you take a moment to see the lessons they are trying to show the children watching.
Today they had a theme that they repeated throughout the episode, “A problem is just a misunderstood opportunity.” How true! What challenges have you been fretting over lately that if just looked at a bit differently could be an opportunity waiting to happen?
How many times have you taken your precious time and wasted it thinking and dwelling on your problems? Maybe your challenge is no time and you are wasting what you have thinking about what you don't have! I have seen that many times. In fact, I fall into that trap myself sometimes.
While it sounds trite, you really do have an opportunity to look at situations with the “half full” or “half empty” perspective. That is easier said than done sometimes. I like the way the cartoon framed it.
I challenge you to find your opportunities!
To your success!
