Opportunities falls into one’s path for a reason, the
synchronicity of life and one has to be cognizant that
such day will unfold and embrace the opportunity with
all that is within. One has to be the light to recognize
its worth and not be blinded by others and meekly
stumble into subliminal despair.
are many factors for missed opportunities, disrespect,
ungratefulness, selfishness, and plain old stupidity.
Unfortunately, these traits really get us no where in
life and hinders our progress as mentors and role models
in today’s societies. We find ourselves not being
proactive BUT in fact REACTIVE, following others trying
to be what we are not. One has to recognize one’s self
as being unique and setting one’s vision far beyond the
glorious blue skies instead of not appreciating that
accomplishment that God has granted us. Not appreciating
the hard work and sacrifices that others have done so
unselfishly for us without asking for anything in
return, other than you pay it forward to help continue
this cycle of hope. We find ourselves so caught up in
the idea that if and just if you were in someone else’s
shoes that the world would be at your feet not realizing
what you have accomplished is much bigger and because of
these traits you create the “missed opportunities”.
deceit and being a complete hypocrite are often the
cause for “missed opportunities” as well. We become
entangled in these misguided traits and become blind to
the fact that there are good things beyond the horizon
for us if we just endeavor at it and appreciate the
effort of others. One just can’t sit and wait for
success to fall in one’s hands without any work. It
takes a cooperative effort to achieve success otherwise
you will always be opened to “missed opportunities”.
us fail to realize what lies ahead of us therefore, the
chest full of diamonds, gold and rubies are often left
alone and untouched by the sacred hands that they were
meant for and will disappear just like in the movies. We
fail to open the chest because our mind is so focused on
the little jar full of cookies that we end up missing
out on opportunities that would otherwise make a
difference in our lives. We become statistic, a failure.
We continue making the predictions true for those of us
whom they predict would fail. It’s no one’s fault but
our own for “missed opportunities”.
Opportunities come once in a lifetime to each of us, and
one has to be very wise in its choice. Either you smile
and tell the almighty that you are ready to accept such
a blessing or you close your eyes and realize that your
GOLDEN opportunity was “missed”.
