Was stuck in the infamous KL traffic jam yesterday.
Was feeling quite angry with myself, as the reason I was stuck in the jam was because I took a wrong turning. Pretty scary how a 1-sec decision would eventually take up 20-min of your life.
So, I was sitting in the car contemplating the current situation.
“So many problems,” I grunted.
“What was the word you used?” Jamie teased. We always try to advocate positive thinking.
“Ok, fine fine. Not problems. Challenges,” I replied.
“That’s much better.”
“Actually, why not call them opportunities?” I quipped.
“That’s taking it a bit too far,” he laughed.
But isn’t it amazing?
One scenario, so many ways of looking at it. Many a times, the greatest inventions or ideas were born because someone was in a bad situation, and by thinking of how to get out of it, they found a great opportunity!Â 🙂
I swerved my car into another lane.
“See? That was actually an opportunity for me. I could either seize the opportunity to move to a faster moving lane, or stay on in the slower moving lane and complain!”
And he laughed. 🙂
