Work is something the majority of us do as we all have to work in one capacity or another. It is an intrinsic part of our natures. We manifest the jobs and careers which are suitable to our skills, set our goals and get focused. Some of us are driven, some of us are unmotivated and some of us don’t know what we want to be when we grow up.
So much time and energy is spent on getting there. What about what happens when you get there? How do we stay motivated? How do we create challenges to keep focused? How do we focus on what obstacle or limitations we must overcome to do the work? Why do we discount our goals and not give our achievements their due? How do we absorb ourselves in distractions? Is your crisis an opportunity? Or is your opportunity a crisis?

We all work in one capacity of another. We work for ourselves and our families. We work for goals and dreams. We work to see how far we can go and we work for how far we have come.

Our crisis is the opportunity to grow. Our opportunity is our crisis to show who we are and where we are going. We are more than we can ever know.
