Defining challenges, threats, and opportunities is a key to success in any business. Identifying these three key components in our personal lives is a much greater challenge, but one that might be worth contemplating.
The August Farmer Fred Award Runner-Up for August 2013 is presented to:
Challenges, Threats, and Opportunities
originally published August 31
Each day is filled with challenges, threats, and opportunities.
Identifying each, so that they can be faced with the least fear is a key to a happy life.
Farmer Fred tells me that fear is False Expectations Appearing Real. Of course, sometimes unpleasant expectations are actually true threats. Completely out of our control in many cases, we must face what comes.
That is when the threats can be taken as challenges and those challenges bring opportunities.
Opportunities give us a chance and a chance is all we need. Stripped down, it's really the only thing life offers.
