For every problem that comes into your life, the solution already exists… the trick is in recognizing it.
I believe for most of us life is magical. Okay, actually I believe for ALL of us life is magical. But for many, we stand in the way of the magic, we block it, we resist it. I believe that there is an orchestrated dance as we go through our lives creating a perfect symphony. We just don’t have the trained ear to hear how perfectly all the other instruments are in tune and in rhythm with us.
All of this stems from our attitude about what happens. Let me give some examples. Ever notice that right when you finally get $800 saved up, your car’s transmission needs an $800 repair? So which is the reality? Is it true that whenever you finally get some money saved up, something bad happens to make you broke again? Or is it true that whenever a problem shows up, the solution is already magically in place?
Here’s another example. Ever notice that a romance breaks up in perfect timing for you to meet a spectacular new person? Ever notice that you lose a job in perfect timing for a spectacular new career? Ever notice that the “wrong turn” on a vacation sometimes brings the most spectacular experience of the trip? Personally, with me it is always an amazing panoramic view that I didn’t know existed.
Here’s the core of this idea. Each problem in our life leads us to an amazing adventure of growth and expansion. This growing is something we are all craving, at all times… to become more! Each challenge is an opportunity.
So the next time a problem or challenge arrives, embrace it, and look around, the solution and the opportunity to grow are already in place. You just have to find it. Enjoy the magic in it all.
I believe that for ALL of us life is magical. You can too. Simply choose to believe it.
