“Problems are simply opportunities in work clothes”
In Chinese, “crisis” is written with two symbols. In the English language, these translate to “Danger”, and “Opportunity”. These two words summarize our emotional connection to adversity very well.
Problems feel “dangerous”, because we’d rather be comfortable, cozy, and safe. It’s a human condition… we don’t like change. But problems are also full of “opportunity”, as the uncomfortable hot mess of adversity is the greatest catalyst to our growth.
Our greatest opportunities in life will also be our most trying. And if we can reframe those “problems” to being the enablers of growth, we can go wherever we want to go. We just need to suit up and get to work.
