Seeing opportunities instead of problems

A wealthy man, on his way to catch a plane, parked outside a Manhattan bank and took out a five thousand dollar loan, leaving his Rolls Royce as collateral. Two weeks later he returned to get his car back. He paid back the five thousand dollars plus fifteen dollars and forty cents interest. The loan officer was intrigued and asked him why a man who could afford a Rolls Royce needed to borrow five thousand dollars. The millionaire explained that he didn’t need the loan, he just needed a safe place to park his car, and where else in Manhattan could he do that for only fifteen dollars and forty cents. No wonder he was a millionaire.
Winners in life are those who see opportunities where other people only see problems. It’s what Jesus meant when he said: ‘If you can believe, all things are possible.’
