Focus on Opportunities
During the Prophet’s time in Makkah, there used to be various kinds of events held in the marketplaces. There would be circus, singing and dancing held here. But the Prophet would still go to these places to convey the message of God to people there. Thinking of one’s circumstances as a problem is a case of blindness, while seeing opportunities in every situation is the right approach. Never in this world will one receive good in its pure form. Always good things will come along with bad things. Those who can only see the bad and not the good are unwise. Umar Faruq once said that an intelligent person is one who can see the good in the bad.
