"A challenge is simply an opportunity in disguise."
— Scott Dinsmore. From an article he posted on the inspirational Zen Habits.
With the interview series, I've been asking the passionate artists and entrepreneurs about the challenges they've faced in pursuing their dreams. Reading about how they've dealt with and overcome these obstacles, the wisdom and insight they've gained as a result of them is wonderfully apparent. It's so easy to look at a challenge as an end but too many people have moved through these temporary walls and onto the beautiful pastures that they sought. If they can, you can and I can.
It's all about reframing the level of water in the glass. You can either be open to opportunity or quick to discount trials as impediments. Retrospect is a luxury but in the meantime, we've got faith.
