What do you see?

It’s all in how you look at things. I remember walking into the sales office where I worked many years ago and seeing a large banner across someone’s desk that proclaimed “opportunityisnowhere”. I couldn’t figure out why anyone would want to post a sign like that, so I stopped at the person’s desk and asked.

I was reading the sign as “opportunity is nowhere” (which explained my puzzlement), but she pointed out that there was more than one way to read the sign. She saw it as “opportunity is now here”. What a difference a little bit of spacing and perspective makes.

The same thing is true in our financial lives. We can look at financial difficulties and feel as though we’re trapped in them forever, or we can look at them as opportunity knocking. We could feel hopeless about the prospect of ever getting out of debt, or excited at the opportunity to learn and implement sound financial principles and change our future. We can see declines in the stock market as a reason to panic, or see those same declines as a great opportunity to get 15% off on stock.

Taking a step back and looking at things from a different space often reveals hidden opportunities.
