Who has been granted an amazing opportunity to take their life in a different direction, but have been scared to do so because of their fear of taking on the unknown and their unwillingness to change? Life can be a wonderful idea at the best of times, even though some of us may see the bad side of life sometimes, it provides us with endless amounts of opportunities day in day out, we are constantly being surrounded by opportunities. Weather or not we embrace these opportunities is a whole different story. Embracing these opportunities can act as an avenue for change for some people, its regarded as a change catalyst. Opportunities can be in the form of so many different ideas from, finding a new level of happiness, to a change in career path that has the ability to provide you with all the success and happiness you have been trying so hard to achieve in the past.
Opportunities are thrown at us from all different angles, but often times, our minds aren’t there to grasp on to these opportunities. This can be because we are still worried about or holding on to past experiences that we can’t seem to manage to let go, and it is these experiences that often blind side us from facing potential new opportunities. We need to have the ability to ‘let go’ most of the time, however it is easier said then done. A lot of us believe that the better days are behind us, and it’s only a slow decline to the bottom from a centre point in life, and these people are often the ones that can be described as being stubborn or even having a close mind to the outside world. It is important to understand that the future holds endless amounts of opportunities for everyone and anyone, and it’s up to their personality and beliefs weather or not they can actually accept uncertainty in the future and view it is as being a positive aspect rather than a negative aspect. If you are one of those people who love the idea of facing uncertainty in the future by taking calculated risks, then you will often share an open mind, and these are the types of people who continually seek success in their lifetime, even though they are understanding of the fact that they could also fail in their endeavours.
When I left home for the first time in my life to chase my dreams almost 4 years ago, I was dealt with many uncertainties, so many that it also forced me to stay home and forfeit my scholarship at college in America. I have experienced a lot of these uncertainties up until this point in my life, and even though I’m sure I will be dealt with many more opportunities throughout my life, I’m sure this particular opportunity to come to the United States will be regarded as one of my more life changing opportunities. I have always been the one to find comfort in my own home very easily, however, I knew I had the potential to do something great and I wasn’t going to chase it on the couch and having an opportunity like this one couldn’t be thrown out the window. I have now learned to be much more open minded about life and its challenges, but at the same time my open mind outlook on life has provided with many more opportunities and happiness at the same time, that goes without saying I have also experienced many failures along the way but have viewed them as an opportunity to learn.
Embrace life’s opportunities with open arms, you never know where they could lead you.
