Making the Best of a Bad Situation

Three men had adjacent businesses in the same building. The man who ran the store owner at one end of the building put up a sign that said "Clearance Sale-Major Markdowns!"

At the other end of the building, the businessman who ran that store put up a sign that said "Close-Out Sale."

The businessman in the middle knew that no matter what he did his business was going to be hurt.  So he thought about what he could to make the best of a bad situation.  He came up with a solution; he put up a sign that said "Main Entrance Here".

The lesson here is that when faced with challenges or problems we can choose to complain and be frustrated, or we can look for the hidden opportunity within the situation and make the best of it.
