Mental Toughness: Learn how to be creative

Ask yourself as often as possible the magic question:  "Where is the hidden opportunity?"  In fact, set it up as an auto reminder on your itouch.

The other day, my hidden opportunity reminder went off while I was about to throw out my junkmail.  As a result, I examined it thoroughly, and created a very cool thing.

There are hidden opportunities all around you, you simply have to train your eye to look for them.  Where's Waldo is just a picture of a bunch of people unless you know what you're looking for.

Look for the hidden opportunity in everything.  Bonus, look for the hidden opportunity in EVERYTHING (even the crappy stuff!)

When you have a challenge hit you in your life that is unexpected - play a game.  Ask yourself "what's great about this?" and "how is this one of the better opportunities of my life?" you'll be surprised!
