Hope that you are enjoying the Wonderful Wednesday spirit, where we take a few moments out of our often-hectic lives to stay in touch and recharge our batteries.
Do you sometimes feel that what you want is not happening and question why you do the things that you do, then suddenly, when you least expect it rewarding things start happening one after the other? You have, so do you take the time to track the decision that triggered such an impacting set of responses?
We often advise people that the hardest thing to do when weighing up options is to make a decision. Once the decision has been made, everything (some would say the Universe) falls into place, and creates a chain reaction of similar events. Therefore, at some point, you helped to create an opportunity. However, many of us are not always “open” to the possibilities that are there for us.
It is like the story of the man who saw a piece of wood by the side of the road and thought of it as rotten. Another man saw the same piece of wood and whittled it into a beautiful figurine. The first man, at a later date, saw the figurine and offered the whittler a handsome purchase price. This is a classic example of someone who was not aware of an opportunity that was right there before them!
Remember, “Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor” – H. Jackson Brown Jr.
