Inspired by the challenge

My friend and I were texting yesterday about some of our creative projects, and I asked him what he has been inspired by lately.

"I've been inspired about the current events," he said. "There are just all these cool possibilities."

It caught me off guard. The current events have been so heavy and challenging to sift through, but the way he has been seeing them is totally different. He is seeing opportunity in this moment. He is inspired by the challenge, not torn down by it.

So how can you look at the challenge you're facing today, and see it as an opportunity?
