You can create your own opportunities. You have what it takes to create your own opportunities. Don’t go through life and miss what will make you a success.

We think opportunities are for special people. No, they are not. Opportunities belong to those who look for them. You get what you look for. And if you do not look for it, you will not find it.

Opportunities are within your reach. They are not what you cannot find. You can find them. They are in your workplace. They are on the street. They are in your library. They are everywhere. The question is, how can you create your own opportunities?

Chris Grosser said, “Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” He is right.

You can create your own opportunities by what you do every day. You can create your own opportunities by focusing on what is working for you. You can create your own opportunities by asking the right questions.

“Opportunities are everywhere.”

You can find your own opportunities in your current workplace, so do not ignore it. Take advantage of it. Do not ignore what is not working. Find out why it is not working. Listen to people who know more than you do. They have a lot to teach you, if you are ready to learn. Be curious. Ask questions about what you do not know. The more questions you ask, the more questions you will need to ask.

You can create your own opportunities if you can focus on your life. The more you focus on your dreams, the more you will know whether they are your dreams or not. Opportunities can come to you if you focus your mind on the positive things that are happening around you. You cannot find what you are not looking for. Opportunities are everywhere. If you want them, create them.

Finally, you can create your own opportunities by what you tell yourself. If you want to find opportunities, you must keep telling yourself that you can find them. If you believe you can, you will. But if you believe you cannot, you won’t.

Create your own opportunities. Because no one will create them for you. You can.

‘One Faces The Future With One’s Past.’

We can’t understand today if we don’t have the courage to look at where we are coming from. Whether we want to know or not, we are coming from somewhere.

We have done positive and negative things in the past. We like to think about the positive things that we have done. We don’t like to think about the negative things that we have done in the past. Why is that? Positive things make us feel good, and negative things, on the other hand, make us feel bad about ourselves.

We can’t learn from our mistakes if all we do is to focus on the positive things. It is good to focus on the positive side of things, but it is dangerous to ignore our mistakes. We learn more from mistake than success. ‘We learn more from failure than success.’

But if we really want to know what we have done wrong, why they were wrong, and how to prevent them from happening again, we MUST face our failures. Without that, we can’t have the full picture of our past.

“You can’t move forward if you don’t know where you are coming from.”


Pearl S. Buck said, “One faces the future with one’s past.” You cannot separate yourself from your past. It is a part of your life. Now, what does it mean to learn from the past?

Learning from the past will prepare you to handle tomorrow’s problems. By understanding your past, you will learn more about your mistakes, your failures, your successes, and you will learn how to prevent your past mistakes from happening again.

You can’t move forward if you don’t know where you are coming from. So to move forward, you must study your past.

“If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.”– Pearl S. Buck, writer
