Your difficulty may be the key that opens the door to a big opportunity. Adversity forces you to think of an alternate solution to your situation. It can save you from continuing on the path that may hold an even greater disaster.

Richard Bach was forced to look for an alternate solution to the difficulty he faced. He wrote a 10,000-word story about a “soaring” seagull. The manuscript was rejected by eighteen publishers. In 1079, Macmillan finally agreed to publish his work. Within five years, Bach’s famous manuscript had sold over seven million copies in the U.S. alone. The title of his often rejected but now famous work is Jonathan Livingston Seagull!

Your present difficulty may open the door to your next great opportunity. Let courage arise. Your current adversity may be a blessing in disguise. Don’t miss your new opportunity that may cloaked in adversity!
