How does a beautiful pearl come from an ugly oyster?
Perhaps there was a sudden wind that flew a speck of sand into your eye. Cautiously, you cleaned it out. Problem solved, right?
But an oyster looks at the grain of sand as an opportunity, not a problem. Slowly, sometimes taking as long as two decades, it turns this grit of sand into a beautiful pearl.
Adversity can bring irritation, and it can also bring opportunity - either in your personal life or in business. If you're not happy with your situation, and you've finally decided to do something about it, then you can create something new and wonderful.
"Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit." ~Napoleon Hill
