Mindset

I was waiting in line at a locally owned fried chicken and cholesterol restaurant, waiting to let them take my money.  The place was hopping, and the staff could barely keep up.  Through the bustle, you could hear several people grumbling about the wait.

One gentleman turned to me, grinned, and said, "Man, I sure wish I could buy stock in this place!"

Some people look for reasons to complain, others look for opportunities.

A profound truth laid bare in this brief literary moment. There is always some sort of opportunity for growth in a potentially "negative" situation.
Brings to mind the idea of being proactive vs. reactive. Good stuff!
P.S. I like guns too. :o)
