I was making a Facebook stat this morning and realized, I have too much to share on this so decided to blog my thoughts. Because you know, when you think about it, there are so many opportunities in life presented to us, but many of us do not even recognize them. And other times, we have these novel ideas, wild imaginations, and we do nothing about them. We are wasting so much time.Every life has a beginning and an expiration date. But you know the same is true for opportunities.
Opportunities present themselves every day, but we don’t step out and seize them because we have programmed ourselves with thoughts of fear and failure. We get overly concerned with rejection that we convince ourselves it’s not worth the risk. And then there are times when we could literally create an opportunity if we just opened our mouths and asked. But we don’t, because we don’t want to hear “no”. So guess what, we just missed out on something that could have possibly changed our lives. I have done that before and I regretted it. We have these self-defeating thoughts and we let them rule our minds, and they sit there repeating themselves, simmering, until we totally succumb to them. I mean there are people in your life right now that could literally be the key to your opportunity. They could know someone that knows someone that could be the person to invest in you or believe in your idea. It is said there are no more than six degrees of separation between any two people, but I am saying there are even less now with social media. Some people you are afraid to approach because you’ve painted this picture of who they are, and in your mind you are not good enough to approach them. Well – WHATEVER. I “ain’t never scurred” to approach anyone. Do you know how many times I have “inboxed” or emailed people others consider “famous”, knowing full well they don’t manage their own social media profiles or email? But you know what, I believe with everything in me, one day I am going to get the right person on the right day, so I keep pushing. I am just that bold. By the way, I don’t believe in chance. I believe everything that happens in our lives, every person that comes along our paths, we attracted either by our faith or fear; I believe we create opportunities, and we also create environments for failure. So, so what you got a no answer, you have to resolve that that no means no right now, but it doesn’t mean no really. You feel me?!
Every opportunity has an expiration date, and the key is to seize it within its lifetime. Listen, fear in your life is such a phony, so sly and coy. It pretends and comes to you dressed up as common sense, sound judgment, and “careful consideration”. You use it to make a decision that your opportunity is too risky, or you allow it to make you believe you are not equipped or ready. But I am telling you to stop it right now! Stop being scared and just do it! Seize the opportunity to change your world and make your dreams come true! The world is waiting on you.
