Success or failure is highly influenced by opportunity. But how? You may ask. For every attempt to achieve an aim there is an equivalent opportunity. With the application of wisdom, skill and the right principles we consciously put ourselves in the path of opportunity.
There is the possibility as well as the opportunity to achieve the most of what we should each day. I think whatsoever we need to achieve our purpose is available to us by providence. It only takes understanding, a little bit of wisdom, and some divine direction to see and use the myriad of possibilities that elude us daily. He that sees what others do not see gets to solve more problems as well as achieve more.
Opportunity works like crane, each one used serve as a platform for another. Each missed, will in one way or the other hamper the success of forthcoming ones. That is why it’s always necessary to make the most out of available opportunity.
There are always two dimensions about opportunity. It either results in success or failure, depending on how one handles it. There is no in between, you either utilize it or you lose it. But be rest assured that the opportunity you did not take when you could might come back to hunt you.
Opportunity can be created. As one can create a pleasant atmosphere out of a repulsive one by aerating it, the same is analogous to creating opportunity. By identifying the possibility of what can be achieved and working towards it, we create the opening for that to be achieved.
A times, opportunities get to those who least deserve it while it eludes those who most deserve it (it’s natural anyway). This is where you need to be creative in applying the idea in the preceding paragraph. Most regrets we face in life are mostly as a result of the opportunity we fail to use.
