*_Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well._*
— _Josh Billings_
When one path is blocked, you’re forced to look for another path. There’s a good chance that other path could be a better one.
When the usual options are unavailable, you must look for other options. That could very well lead you to a more valuable option.
It’s easy to get complacent when things are going smoothly. But if you remain complacent for too long, you’ll wake up one day to discover you’ve been left behind.
Sure, unexpected challenges can be bothersome. But they can also keep you on your toes.
That sudden, difficult situation can lead to new, valuable skills, knowledge, wisdom and vigor. When events don’t go as expected, it’s your opportunity to expect more from yourself.
You are flexible, adaptable, resourceful, able to transform setbacks and surprises into new progress. Decide to thrive on the challenges, and you’ll find an even better way.
