Opportunity

It seems that many people are under the impression that they never have had, and never will have, the opportunity to become “successful.” They look at other’s success with envy, choosing to believe that success comes from nothing but good look. Yet, while this jealousy is consuming their lives, they fail to see the vast amount of opportunities that are presented to them. Everyday we are given the chance to do something new, to work towards something greater, and to be something more.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
— Thomas Edison

Taking action in this life is the only reliable way to move forward. How many times have you thought to yourself, “I wish I would have started yesterday.” This can be discouraging to think about sometimes; we continue to think about the negatives in our inability to act, and lose time that could have been spent working. Learn to allow this frantic push to encourage you to keep doing, rather than letting it hold you back. My encouragement to all of you is to start something new today. Start something that you will be eager to work towards every single day. Start something that drives you. Start something that forces you to wake up each morning and jump out of bed. Start something you love. Give yourself an opportunity that you can grasp, and give yourself a meaning to live every day.

 

Find opportunities.

Work at what you love.

Be happy.
