Do you feel defeated?

“Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat”
— Napoleon Hill,

Does this quote resonate with you?

Just when you think you are not able to take another step, an opportunity walks around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I cannot count the number of times I have hit the wall only for something to clear the clutter and whisk me off to great new things.

The word defeat is an interesting one.  It can mean

: win a victory over (someone) in a battle or other contest; overcome or beat.”  

: to cause (someone or something) to fail

: to control or overcome (something).

The definition tells us that we can defeat something or someone, and this reflects a success.  On the flip side, it can be a low point reflecting a failure or a lack of control.   Just like a coin, how you view defeat is based on which side you are seeing.

writing_block1.1.1.1How does this relate to your business?  Well, over the past 25 years in business I have faced some situations where I was focusing on the positive side and kept my eyes and mind open.  In these instances, the hard work I had done previously set me up perfectly to be opportunistic when something new came along. I refused to see failure – only opportunity.  Much of this mindset came with the help of  my mastermind group or Coach, who’s insights, ideas and support have helped me focus on the positives, set myself up for success and speed up the process from idea to action.
