Call it a silver lining, call it optimism, call it whatever you like.
There is usually an upside to any circumstance or situation in life. In development, innovation or relationships, the effort we put in is rewarded.
It might not be where you think and it might not always be a large return on your investment (of time, energy or money). You’ll have to look closely to glean the lesson from the experience.
Yet, there will be something to learn and take away. This will help to inform our next effort and will contribute toward our evolution.
Look for the upside.
