INSPIRING: Never take this for granted!
I wanted to share with you an inspiring quote from William Arthur Ward:
"Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them."
Whether a fantastic new job opportunity presents itself, a house you've been eying for some time finally becomes available on the market, or you serendipitously meet someone who seems to embody everything you want in a partner, when opportunity comes knocking, you must answer the door!
It probably sounds cliché by now, but some opportunities don't come twice in a lifetime.
If a great one comes up, don't rest on your laurels -- seize it before someone else does!
Most people would agree that it's better to regret doing something than not doing something, so long as your gut doesn't tell you otherwise.
At least when you do something that turns out unfavorably, you learn from it so that next time you can make a more sound decision. Experience steels us for future challenges.
When you refrain from doing something -- whether out of fear or complacency -- you're left with that nagging feeling of "what if."
What if you had taken advantage of the opportunity? You might very well be enjoying the fruits of that decision as we speak. No guts, no glory.
Most people know a good opportunity when they see one, but they're too ensconced in their comfort zone to grab it.
If you're truly content with the way your life is and don't see seizing on the opportunity as a way of enhancing your life, perhaps it would be best to pass.
But if you really yearn for the opportunity and know it'll be a difference maker in your life, take advantage of it before it's too late!
Nobody is going to hand you an opportunity on a silver platter. You have to go out there and capitalize on them.
Don't assume that if you pass on this one, another opportunity this good will magically pop up in the future.
Sure, you might meet other guys, but perhaps none will share your love of classical music like one you just met. And, yes, you might get other job offers, but maybe none will allow you to work from home like the one you're weighing currently.
Be brave. Be proactive. Believe in yourself. And never take any opportunity life throws at you for granted!
