And.. What's an Opportunity

Somewhere I read that opportunity  "is like an open smile on an unknown face". I think an opportunity  is a "chance", a "profitable circumstance" just as we pay attention and stay alert to everything that what happens around us, what we win, what we lose or what we think we did not win is when we see them.

We also often see as an opportunity, everything that is in our convenience and close to us, we like and expect things to be given.

The opportunity is not a gift, a challenge is an "option", that you can see and take it or you can choose to shuffle the cards and come out on another play.

We often say "I'm at the bottom," I'm bad, I failed!, If only I had a break!

Well, she is always there, behind every bad moment, every misstep, every gray day, every time walking at the beat of your shadow, but you need to perceive it, feel it, and most important, and decide to take it [the opportunity] as a real and appropriate change in your life.

Not only in light of adversity we find an opportunity, also we can see them on a stage full of lights, but when we are at a difficult times is only where we pay the attention needed.


If you become unemployed, you are on lookout for job applications, if you lost something is when you are looking for, but you know when you can find better things? When You're always attentive because there will always be more opportunities, then you can choose and not have to simply accept all what's left.

As we can have a wide spectrum around us, is when we'll find many opportunities and consequently they are going to create new choices, and therefore we can choose better.

"You are not waiting for an opportunity, an opportunity is waiting to be seen by you".

But they are alternating, changing. While you are still in place, having missed so many and still sitting waiting to knock the door.

My advice? Search It!, When you see it, DO NOT LET GO! When you have it, value it You will not live forever, but you can tell what it takes to suffer trough it and change your mind only when is gone.

  16. Very much agree with you on the importance of always being attentive. The best opportunities open up when you wouldn't expect them to you, but if you aren't paying attention you could miss them.

  21. There are many circumstances in life that we can't control, that are beyond us, that's why we should be prepared with education, knowledge and moral values to confront the surprises in life and to be able to recognize when we have an opportunity in front our face. I don't believe in good luck or things like that. But I sure believe in ''being in the right place at the right time'' and in that moment if we don't have the tools to succeed, that chance is going to pass by us. i think since we are very young we should start working on knowing ourselves, recognizing our strengths and weakness, develop control over our emotions, which I think is very difficult but extremely important, but, if we know all this things we can prepare for life in a more effective way.
