This quote, by Wayne Dyer, is about the power of perspective. The best way to appreciate it is by reflecting on your own experience. Think about a time you’ve had a feeling something won’t work out and a time when you’ve felt confident something will work out. With the first perspective, it’s easier to see all the things that might go wrong–the obstacles. Although it helps to be aware of the obstacles, only seeing them and not the opportunities is just discouraging. However, with a perspective that things will work out, even things that are legitimate obstacles can be perceived as opportunities.
