Embrace This

What have you chosen to see?


This morning I woke up early and decided to “work” by the beach. I had the opportunity to see the sunrise and appreciated the beauty of it as I sat and reflected. The truth is that the sun has been “rising” everyday but I wasn’t in this spot to see it cast its reflections over the beautiful Lake Malawi. My home is not by the beach so I don’t get to see this beautiful scenery every day.

Whether I see the sunrise or not, it is NOT the problem of the sun, but me. To see the sunrise by the beach, I needed to 1) Travel to the beach, 2) Know which direction to face, and 3) Rise up early to see it.

All around us are great opportunities, but we will only see them if we know where to look and be willing to work hard to appropriate them. “Opportunities will drop in your lap if you have your lap where opportunities drop”. Where is your lap? Are you sure you are where opportunities can be found? Remember, you will never pick seashells in the mountains.

Finally: “The way you choose to see the world, created the world you see”. This morning I CHOSE to see a beautiful world. Make that choice too. There is always a silver lining in the clouds. Don’t focus on the thorns, look at the rose. Don’t focus on the storm, focus on the rain showers. Don’t focus on the mud, see what is growing with the rains. Don’t be blinded the negativity around you. There is always a ray of sunshine beyond all the challenges we face.

Have a great and productive day!
