Opportunities are a gift sent our way which I term as “Gifted Opportunities“. At times it is due to a set of events that have taken place or our dogged persistence. On the odd occasion, just being in the right place at the right time. We are all presented with opportunities, equal or not.
Therefore, I say, “Grab them with both hands and see where things go!”
Generally people are scared to embrace change and often forsake gifted opportunities
In a similar way, the above meme explains this without the need for elaborate words. Simple and to the point! Furthermore, we look for immediate comfort in order to feel safe and loved. Many people that are successful have a positive approach. Keep on trying. If something doesn’t work, try again.
I urge you to read Richard Branson’s autobiography. He was not a self made millionaire over night. He failed at many business ventures, persistence was key. Now that he has made many dreams come true by hiring and helping many people along the way. He has a quality of life afforded to him by his hard work and wits.
What hold’s us back from making a name and a happy life for ourselves is fear
In other words, fear of failure. Fear of dropping the ball on these Gifted Opportunities. Often we are stuck in our ways and are not prepared to put in the added effort. We find comfort in what we know as opposed to the uncertain.
So we queue the generic excuse – I am too busy! No time man! Either there is an underlying fear or lack of motivation. Not everyone wakes up with a burning passion to spring them forward with a dogged approach of putting their all in. I get it. Personally I can say that I been there and done that! For me, it is more a lack of motivation at times. The best remedy is to just show up and be present. Live in the present, not the past or future.
As an example, if I had to look back at gifted opportunities that have come my way and look at where I am placed in my life today. Each opportunity that I took advantage of and added my time and effort to has made me more successful within my own self, my knowledge and my understanding. Not all is related to financial wealth. After all, we don’t take our finances with us when we check out. One has to find a balance in ones life. Living, experiencing, loving, having your heart broken and reshaped. We all measure our success in different ways depending on our upbringing and our “Gifted Opportunities!“
