79/365 – ” Can you reframe that into an opportunity? ”
Once in a while, our past self will overcommit our future self to projects that don’t serve us.
This can happen for many reasons. Perhaps the nature of the project changed as time went by, or our goals shifted over time, or the relationship that seemed promising ended up souring.
In a best-case scenario, we can drop the project gracefully. But sometimes, we get trapped in a situation that’s too delicate to escape.
In those instances, changing our mindset to find the opportunity within the constraint is all that we can do.
Choosing to see a negative situation as an opportunity allows us to see possibility rather than ensnared by frustration.
