What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude towards it! Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity."

- J. Sidlow Baxter

In simple terms, try to look at the silver lining in everything. The difficulties you are going through can end up opening possibilities for you. The good chances you are having right now might have challenges in it. Either way, let’s look at the bright side.

Take the problems and difficulties in life. It comes and goes. When you take it as an obstacle, you feel down. Instead, look for opportunities in those difficult situations. See your options. Think of what you can do to resolve those conflicts. Sometimes people explore their skills and talents during the challenging times in life.

The Difficult times push people to move out of comfort zone. They end up getting more positive breaks. Everything is a chance and an opportunity for you. Use it.

Once you get your chance, it’s might not be easy too. You might experience challenges on the way. Remember, the more challenges you face, the easier it is to reach your success and goals.

There will always be good in the bad and bad in the good. It depends upon our attitudes to either look at the good or think of the bad.

To see the challenges as difficulties will make things more difficult for us. To take obstacles as challenges will bring success.

Try to look on the bright side as often as you can.


You are slowly growing but you are still growing and that is enough Unknown

My life has its own pace, and so does yours. Similarly, my growth in life is at a pace that could differ from yours. All that matters is to keep growing and keep going.

Keep running at the pace that you can. Never compare.

When you compare your life and its growth with others, the efforts you made so far become meaningless.

Do yourself a little favor. Stop comparing your life and your growth with others.

Keep growing at a pace that you can. Even if it is slow, you grow. Instead, don’t stay there. Don’t cut your growth in comparison with others.

One thing that makes us insecure is to see the other person’s growth and compare it to ours. You can inspire them. Learn how they made the growth possible. Instead, let’s not try to fit in their growth equation. If we do so, we are demeaning our life’s uniqueness.

So, what is the growth that we are talking about?

Take it in two ways.

First, growth is about securing ‘yourself’ in terms of your work, business, finances, commitments, basic needs, and sorts. Practically, they are all our necessities. Gradually we can grow here.

Second, growth is about enhancing yourself as a person and enhancing your morale. Keep enhancing the good. And keep walking away as far as you can from all the things that bring you down. But here you can grow as fast as you can.

Life gets its meaning when you define your growth in your own terms. Keep growing even if it is slow!
