“In the middle of the difficulty lies opportunity.” –Albert Einstein


Welcome to Minute with Maxwell. My name is John.

Albert Einstein said, “In the middle of the difficulty lies opportunity.” Now he was a very smart guy, Albert. We know that. So where does he say opportunity lies? Does he say it lies in the beginning, in the front? Or does he say it lies in the back? Well, you see, he tells us that it's in the middle. And I think that there’s a reason that it’s in the middle. It's never in the beginning. I've often said that opportunity is always disguised by problems, barriers, obstacles and difficulties. You never see an opportunity without a problem. It's always the problem then the opportunity. But I like the fact that he says it's in the middle. Because if it's in the middle, we've already gotten invested. We're already halfway there, and now we've got a little bit of a skin in the game.

Albert Einstein was just basically saying right in the middle of all that crisis, we're right in a crisis right now, he said, I want you to know that's where the opportunity is. So I would encourage you today, despite the difficult times that we're going through, ask yourself, maybe spend, I don't know, 10 minutes, and just write down: what are some of the opportunities that I see based on the difficulty that I'm engaged in right now?

By the way, they're looking for the right medicine for this virus, and they're going to find it. But remember this, every time you take medicine, it's because somebody got ill, sick, or died. All medicine is a result of difficulty, adversity, crisis, always has been. Good things come out of bad things. And Albert, he said, that right in the middle of all that bad stuff, that’s where the good stuff is.

Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
