In his book The Power of Optimism, corporate psychologist and motivational speaker Tim Shurr reminds readers that “even on the darkest, cloudiest, rainiest day, the sun is still shining – you just can’t see it.” He continues that in reality, you’re just not looking for it.
So, when times are tough, and problems appear overwhelming (and everyone has these days) know that solutions are right there. Right there within reach. But you have to take a deep breath, step back and relax, and start to look for them.
And as you look trust that it’s not a question of “if” you will find the solution. Rather, it’s a matter of where you’ll find the solution and what it will be.
So next time you find yourself embroiled in a day that feels dark, cloudy, and rainy, remember that somewhere around you is the answer that will serve as some sunshine. You just need to look for it.
