MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” –Chuck Swindoll
I’m going to give you one of my favorite statements of strength today. It’s from my friend, Chuck Swindoll.
Hi, John Maxwell here; Welcome to Minute with Maxwell.
Chuck said, 'we are all faced with a series of great opportunities'. Now, if I just stop there, that’s a real positive statement: we’re all faced with a series of great opportunities. It’s kind of like: Yes! But then Chuck goes on and says, 'brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.' In other words, we don’t see these incredible opportunities first, because every opportunity that you and I have is surrounded by a problem. I’ve never gone to an opportunity that I didn’t have to go to the door of problems first.
You see, the first thing you and I see is not the opportunity. We see the problem. Now, this is very important for you to know that if all you ever saw was the opportunity, not the problems, everybody would seize the opportunity. Why don't they? Because the opportunity is disguised with problems. So, here's the good news for you. Here's the strength statement: You've got to get through the problem, to find the opportunity. And I promise you right now, in the midst of all the problems that we are facing, there are as many opportunities as there are problems. But you've got to look beyond the problems, because behind that is an opportunity for you to better yourself and for you to better others.
I'm glad you were with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
