“we don’t all have equal opportunity, but we all have the opportunity to be better than we currently are.”
When I first ran into this quote, which comes off a video/audio piece on fearless motivation, I was thinking to myself, “well that doesn’t make any sense.” but as I continued to listen and kept thinking about it, it really hit home for me. We always underestimate how much we can do and what exactly we can accomplish, by saying and providing ourselves with excuses such as “well, I’m not qualified for that job, so why should I apply?” Or maybe we talk ourselves out of taking a chance, an opportunity, by simply thinking we have nothing so why should we even bother to start something that will require resources we currently don’t have. Another quote I always like to think about is this:
““If you are not in the process of becoming the person you want to be, you are automatically engaged in becoming the person you don’t want to be.” Dale Carnegie
when we think about it like this, I’m sure we all suddenly feel like questioning ourselves, “what am I doing right now? am I working towards a goal, a dream? anything important?” chances are we are barely surviving or maybe struggling to pay bills or again just simply going through the motions. But how exactly CAN we change anything in our lives if all we do is complain how everything is the same everyday and how we aren’t progressing or anything at all, if we aren’t even trying to change? see, change in itself isn’t easy, writing these pieces myself, I am in the processes of changing. Sharing these points is my way of changing, and doing more. I’m taking an opportunity to improve my writing skills, my interests, my dreams.
See opportunity doesn’t present itself to those who have lost hope, those who have given up on making a bigger impact. It’s not something that comes to you while not trying to reach higher and do more, opportunity comes to those who are seeking them. And once they find them, they conquer them and grow. Thus, taking their lives to a higher level. So attracting great things in your life, first requires us to put out great things, to offer great things to others. not to sit and complain. “If you are throwing out your story of hardship and bad luck, this universe is going to throw back more examples of hard ship and bad luck for you to deal with.”
So next time we wake up, ready to challenge our day, why not take chances of the opportunities that will come our way, when we start being positive and actively are hoping for something better. If we are trying our best, working hard, those opportunities will come. “This world will always reflect back to you, your very own attitude and beliefs.” So trying our best, putting forth that effort to be great, will always work out to our benefit.
