PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!!Every situation can become an opportunity when properly perceived. There are opportunitiesall around us. Sometimes these opportunities are disguised as positive or negative circum-stances. When a person takes hold of these circumstances, they can be turned around andused as an opportunity.A man named, Joe Resnick, grabbed hold of a negative situation. He was a television repair-man. The antennas he used to repair TVs came in separate pieces. When he was ready to in-stall them, it seemed a piece was always missing. Joe determined to create something bet-ter.After spending a week locked in a chicken shed, he created a solution for his problem. Res-nick designed an antenna, tested it and it worked. Within three years the company did a mil-lion dollars worth of business. His new company was called Channel Master. His negativesituation became the vehicle for a powerful opportunity.What situation are you facing? Is there a hidden opportunity that you have not discovered?Find a still place. Let faith arise. Use your situation to help you create a great opportunity foryour future! YOU ARE THE KEY! READY ? CHOICE!!!
