There are many times in our lives when we experience difficulties. Some difficulties are worse than others, some are temporary, some are long term, and some seem unremitting. Much as we would wish otherwise, misfortune comes unannounced, and will not leave at our command. Misfortune herself seems to have no mistress and enters freely into the most public and the most private parts of live. How should we deal with this uninvited and unwelcome visitor?
Often, in straitened circumstances, we think of those people whose lives seem better than ours, those whom fortune seems to favour, whose lives we might like to have. We imagine that if only we had more money, had been born in to a different background, had gone to a better school, had better looks, if only life had extended to us better opportunities, then success and happiness would reward us too.
What we fail to see is that misfortune and opportunity wear the same clothes, say the same things, and indeed are often the same. What makes them different is how we treat them, whether we welcome them into our lives or turn them away with a cold dismissive stare. Only later, when we look back, do we call them bad or good luck.
This website is here to help you turn bad into good, to help you learn to recognize chances to better yourself and your life.
