Sometimes Opportunity Comes Disguised As Disaster

Sometimes Opportunity Comes
Disguised As Disaster

Lance Armstrong A Great Inspiration

Have you ever heard someone that survived a terrible accident or a dreaded disease later say, it was the best thing that ever happened to them. It is hard to imagine, but I understand exactly what they are saying, and why they fell that way.

I am one of those people. Six years ago I was diagnosed with cancer, at the time I was told, it put me in shock. I went through a period of denial, then reality set in. Once that happened the decision was made to do what medical science had to offer and allow God to do the rest.

If you’re not a christian and don’t believe in God, that’s ok. Whatever or whoever you call on in life or death situations for divine intervention is fine. If you have never been in a life or death situation, believe me, even if you are a non-believer you will become one quick, I have witnessed it many times.

I was a christian and a good man before this happened, I thought anyway. I treated people right, did not create controversy if it could be avoided and helped people if it was convenient to me.

I would always greet people with a smile and hello, but I would never go out of my way to understand if they needed someone to talk to or if they were suffering some trajedy.

This experience made me realize that a good man was not one that did what was easiest for him when it came to others. A good man does what he can to encourage others when they need it, make others smile when they are sad and go out of your way to lift the burden of those carrying a heavy load.

A good man gives back, financially, physically and mentally.

We all have so much to offer and in a world that is moving at what seems to be a hundred miles an hour, it is difficult to find the time to spend with your family, let alone another family that needs a helping hand. But, we need to find a way, don’t wait until something terrible opens your eyes to what is really important in life.

Life is busy and that is not going to change. It’s ok to have a full life, but keep it balanced in all areas, family, physical, emotional, spiritual, social and career. YOU will feel better and perform at maximum potential like a finely tuned engine.

Oh by the way, this is not the only opportunity disguised as disaster that I have been blessed with. Subscribe to my rss feed and learn tomorrow how the collapse of the real estate market, was my second greatest opportunity disguised as disaster in my life.

As always to your health, wealth and happiness.
