Has it ever crossed your mind why some people always make it in life regardless of their status or background or even beliefs? The reason is that they have mastered the LIFE PRINCIPLE which says that, wherever you are there is something prepared for you. Move away from trying to think that good things or better things are never found where you are but rather somewhere else.
Right there where you are you have an opportunity to do great things and to be a better person. You do not need to look for those good things from other people or from other families or communities. Take time to dig around yourself and where you are. This world is structured in such a way that if you truly believe in your dreams and work hard on those dreams, you are going to be a success, regardless of where you are. So opportunity is everywhere.
This world we live in is a place where the bold and courageous ones make it. Be bold in your field of expertise. Be the best in what you do and where you are now, you will make extraordinary milestones. Maybe you are a writer, be the best in your writing. Do not be afraid that most things have been written, the world is waiting to hear your voice concerning a certain philosophy or concept.
Right now the opportunity is there, where you are sitting, working or studying. Look round about and see, the land is full of gold and diamonds for you to pick. I am reminded of a book by; Dr Russell. H Conwell: Acres of Diamonds:
In the book there is a story about a certain farmer who was content because he was happy. One day a certain wise man came and asked him if he knew that finding a diamond the size of his thumb would make him own a city.
The farmer became discontent and unhappy such that he decided to sell off his land to go and look for diamond. He went around the world looking for the diamond and found none. He actually died while searching. On the other hand the new farm owner while watering the camels in the farm found a sparkling stone.
The wise man came back looking for the original farm owner, couldn't find him. The new farm owner showed the wise man the stone and the wise man was amazed because it was DIAMOND.
Meaning the original farm owner was sitting on acres of diamonds yet he knew it not.
Moral of the story
- opportunity is always under our feet. We do not have to go anywhere. All we need to do is recognize it.
"Your big opportunity maybe right where you are now" - Napoleon Hill
"Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more." - Tony Robbins
So opportunity is always knocking at your door, but it takes that kind of eye and a right attitude to realize the great opportunities that lie in your life. You were planted for a purpose where you are right now and you do not need to be someone or somewhere to be significant or influential in this life.
Do not wait to be given an opportunity by anyone, you already have the opportunity under your feet.
