Opportunity – will you be ready when it comes knocking?
Can you hear it? It is there right now and it’s ready to change your life for ever – it’s called opportunity and it is ready to weave its magic. That knock on the door did not arrive by accident. You created it by the power of positive thinking - your own thought - and now that it has arrived you must be ready to grasp all that it offers.
Sorry, what’s that you’re telling me? You can’t see any opportunities, you have no idea what I am talking about. You cannot be serious – opportunities are lining up for you right now, waiting for you to take advantage of them. They are right under your nose.
OK! Let’s stop and wait a minute or two and take a second look. Yes, those opportunities are definitely there but I think I understand the problem. You have created these opportunities but for some strange reason you have it in your head that they must be for someone else.
It seems you have waited so long for that opportunity to turn up that you no longer recognise it and you fear the changes it could bring. You have now arrived at a crossroads – do you take that new job, do you invest in that business, do you risk that close relationship just one more time?
That big break has arrived and you feel unworthy, unwilling to take that leap in the dark – after all things could be worse in your life – why rock the boat for something that might not work out, especially if you had a bad experience last time around.
You no longer see this as an opportunity, but a massive challenge. Something which is unwelcome and to be feared. The Universe delivered just what you wanted and now that it’s there for the taking you seem unable to take that vital next step.
Let’s take a closer look at the problem. As I said at the beginning of this blog, you created the opportunity through the power of positive thinking. You desired this change, visualised it, wrote out the specification and sent your order off to the Universe – which duly delivered.
Why has it now come as such a big surprise? Have you forgotten how hopeful you were for success, how much you wanted to meet the right person, get that new job – you get the idea. Why are you so afraid of it now it’s on your doorstep?
I think we have decided that it’s your call. You can let this opportunity pass you by and regret it for the rest of your life. You will never know what might have been and the bliss and enjoyment it might have provided. I’m sure that if you try hard enough you can think of dozens of good reasons for letting it go.
Alternatively you can embrace everything it has to offer. After all, this is your dream, you created it, and you decided to attract it into your life. And when you make that decision to go with it, you can take control of how things work out in the future.
Think of it as buying a new car. You have now decided to purchase the model you desire, but it doesn’t have to stop there. Would you like air conditioning, disc brakes, sat nav – you choose those little extra’s to enhance and custom design the vehicle.
You can do the same thing with your opportunity. You created it and you can decide how it will work out. Yes, you can be a massive success in that new job, this next relationship will be the love of your life and this time the business will really succeed.
So what’s it to be? Are you ready to drive out of the showroom in your life with your next big opportunity, your next big success? You are at those crossroads – will you turn left or right or just continue with life as it has been?
Powerful positive thinking has brought you this far so why let it go? Even better start writing the specification for the next successful stage in your life – and continue that positive change for ever.
