Movie producer, Michael Todd once said, “Being broke is temporary, being poor is a state of mind.” So it is with opportunity.
Whether you see opportunities or limitations is entirely within your control. How you view the world is a reflection of your mental attitude.
If you focus on your inadequacies, you will be plagued by fear, doubt, and failure, but when you focus on your strengths, you will find courage, confidence, and success.
Self-confidence can replace self-doubt only by deliberate planned effort. When you start to doubt your capabilities, pause to review your previous accomplishments. Identify every experience that might be helpful to you in your present situation. When you apply the knowledge and wisdom you have accumulated, there are few limitations that you cannot overcome.
Those who are quick to see their limitations generally are slow to seeing their opportunities.
Intention: Today I will notice that there is opportunity in all that is presented to me.
