To see the potential in a problem is just as important as seeing the potential in an opportunity. Both will help in getting you where you want to be. So, for example, when you see a frown on someone's face, choose to care, and kindly ask for more information. That little act could very well prevent headaches and heartaches in the future.
That leads to the next point: don't take things in life for granted. When it comes to losing something of value, you never fully realize it until you have actually lost it. But by that time, it will be too late. Perhaps you have experienced this in the past. Refuse to make the same mistake again.
Appreciate even the small things in your life because they are the hidden big things for the mere fact they are in your life. Through a series of conscious and subconscious decisions, you have chosen them. They are part of you. When something that has been a part of you goes missing, you will notice it immediately. You will not be yourself. Hold those close to you close.
Therefore, do what you need to do today. Be a strong, attractive, and caring force in a world that is often none of the above.
