Opportunity is nowhere

 

What do you see?

 

 

Do you see Opportunity is Nowhere?

 

Or do you see Opportunity is Now Here?

 

Change is a part of life. Everything we know and love will somehow and someday change.  Accepting that change is inevitable is step 1; step 2 is the realization that the outcome of change is 100% dependent on how I view the situation.  If I look through the eyes of Opportunity is Nowwherethat is exactly what I will see. Problems, frustrations & dead ends will fill my thoughts and my world, If I am looking for problems they are always easy to find.  If I am looking for Opportunity Now HereI will find that as well.  With a positive and OPEN mind set I give myself the gift of being able to see the big picture and not miss the forest through the trees. 

 

When looking back on my life it always seems that the greatest leaps forward are always followed by challenging situations and times of change.  I like anybody never look forward to having to deal with difficult change but I have learned to embrace it and look for the Opportunity Now Here.  We all become comfortable with in what is familiar and no matter the individual we always resist change but I now see challenges and unexpected changes are necessary. They exist to propel us forward; they force us to make choices and take action on situations and decisions that we have been “toying” with for far too long.  Challenges and change are agents of action, they are Opportunities to move forward and get to a better place but we have to allow that to happen by being OPEN and willing to look at the big picture and take ourselves out of the here and now.

 

2 different CEO’s from 2 different show companies visit the same third world country at different times. Both are making the trip because they have lost huge clients that account for a large portion of their business and they are forced into exploring options to make up the lost revenue. The first arrives and says, “This will never work! No one here is wearing shoes, these people don’t even know what shoes are or any benefit in wearing them.  We will never sell any shoes here!”  The second CEO arrives and says, “This place is a gold mine! No one here has any shoes; we are going to make a killing!”
