When we’re faced with opposition, a good question to ask ourselves is are we missing an opportunity?
Opportunities oftentimes come to us wrapped within some sort of opposition. We miss a lot of opportunities this way mostly because opposition stirs up fear. What if we leaned in to the opposition instead rather than doing what we’ve always done, run away from fear? What would happen then if we stood our ground and leaned into it? Leaned into the fear and resistance? What opportunity would we find?
We won’t know until we try. But if nothing else we’ll find an opportunity to trust ourselves, to prove to ourselves that the fear did not, in fact, kill us.
An opportunity to learn that, is a gift we’ll not want to miss receiving.
