All challenges are hidden opportunities.
A friend rang, it was the year anniversary of a house fire that destroyed everything he owned. He had no insurance. Life is full of harsh challenges, which are in my opinion disguised opportunities. The fire that destroyed his home and belongings gave my friend an opportunity to move on to a new situation without the baggage of the past. My friend prospered and like a phoenix has rebuilt stronger than he was before.
My friend is also involved with a wood, one that my business wishes to pay for tree planting in. My friend faces another challenge that the woodland is for sale. The woodland sale provides an opportunity for the wood to come into ownership of a local, an environmentalist who is working with my friend. I sense from my telephone conversation that the sale is running into technical obstructions, though like all things I see opportunities hidden inside challenge. I believe all will turn out well in this woodland sale, and I shall plan to visit this wood in a few weeks time.
