Discovering opportunities

October 21st, 2010

The problem that angers you the most is a key to the problem you were created to solve.

~Mike Murdock

imagesI have been on a roller coaster ride lately, encountering people who spark enthusiasm and a situation that honestly got me hopping mad.

I am having a complete blast working with clients like Shannon McGill of Shan’s Fitness.  She is rocking Social Media PR and continually shows her appreciation.  I also had the opportunity to promote an upcoming event, the Historic Downtown Urbana Open House. I really feel like I was created to promote and am a genius at making money for other people.

Recently, I had the privilege of meeting Nicolette Pizzitola at the Meet, Plan, Go seminar in Washington DC.  Nicolette lights up a room with her enthusiasm for life and stole the show in DC!  I was totally inspired by her stories of living in Italy and feel blessed that she crossed my path.  Last week I had a Skype chat with her and was encouraged in regards to Weekend Retweat. Today Nicolette posted a quote on her Facebook page that stopped me in my tracks.

As a rule, adversity reveals genius and prosperity hides it. ~Horace

I love my appreciative clients and inspiring friends that gently and enthusiastically encourage me to pursue my dreams.  I need all the encouragement I can get!

However, I am learning that the difficult people and circumstances present unique opportunities that may not come naturally to me.

Without going into details, I worked myself into a good mad about a situation the past few weeks.  Do you know what it is like to be worked into a good mad?  I replayed the situation in my head a hundred times and wanted to tell the whole world how stupid I thought the situation was.  I don’t think words can express how worked up I was.

It wasn’t until I had enough of the bad emotions and calmed myself down that I had an epiphany.  An unexpected idea popped in my head that has potential to be a clue to what I am created to solve.  Out of the adversity a truly exciting project has presented itself to me that could be an ideal career path.

The next time a good mad creeps up on me I hope to have the clarity of mind to remember that adversity and anger are indicators of potential opportunity and genius.
