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