You have the opportunity
But that doesn’t mean you’ll take it.
Every day we have opportunities
I know because I have waisted many of them.
But every single day we have an opportunity to create, Yep even the way the world is right now we still have that opportunity.
To create change in our life, To create something great, To create meaning…
But just because the opportunity is there, Does not mean you will take it.
And just because the opportunity is there does not mean it will be handed to you, You are not entitled to the opportunities you have to earn them.
You have to go out there and do the work required.
Knowing this are you going to sit there and let another day slip by?
Or are you going to take the opportunity in front of you?
You probably don’t realise it
But these could be the best days of your life
Yup even during a ‘pandemic’
These times have forced us to grow, change and adapt
But most of the time pandemic or not whatever were doing, good or bad
It’s when we look back we realise how good or how we changed during those times
Looking back you realise that it was a good holiday, or a tough time but how it changed you
Some of my happier days were when I was broke and sleeping in a car struggling to afford food.
I’m not saying enjoy the moment but dont write it off has a bad time
Because these times are what make us and build character
Take The Risk, Or Lose The Chance
Is a quote I see in the entrepreneur world, All over Instagram and the likes…
It implies that you need to make quick decisions and snap up whatever is in front of you right away. It makes you think that if I wait then I’m going to lose this opportunity and there will be no more.
It also rushes you into making the decision and not truly thinking through whether it is actually an opportunity or not.
Sometimes the risk you need to take is to wait.
That’s right wait, instead of snapping up the first thing that comes along.
Wait and the opportunity will arise.
Rush and what you thought was an opportunity was actually disaster in disguise.
Bad chapters can still create great stories
Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,
But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times
Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
No one is responsible for your happiness,
And your not responsible for anyone else’s
No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take
Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,
Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens
It’s all on you.
