Creating Your Own Opportunity

A problem is a learning opportunity

Your life is not static. Every decision, setback, or triumph is an opportunity to identify the seeds of truth that make you the wonderous human being that you are.”- Oprah Winfrey

Whether you want to accept it or not, you are a great person. What you need to do great things in your life is within you. Don’t ignore it. Nurture it. Bring it out. Don’t hide your best self. If you want to do your best work on this planet, you must first bring out your best. Do not let fear stop you from being you. Do not let people stop you from doing your best work on earth. Listen to people who are ready and willing to lift you up. Do not worry about those who can’t get anything done. They can’t see opportunities.

We don’t see opportunities because we are scared. We don’t want to look stupid. We are okay with what we are doing. We are okay with where we are, even though we don’t like it. If you want to be successful in your life, you must not take yourself too seriously. You must learn to go with the flow. Let things happen. Don’t ignore a problem. It is the bridge between where you are now and where you want to be. If you want to grow in your life, look for problems and solve them. The world is looking for problem solvers, not problems creators.

You can change your life. To do that, you must not be afraid to fail. If you believe in something, go for it. Don’t worry about naysayers. Worry about what you are doing. Why is that? Because it is what you are doing that is going to change your life, not what naysayers are saying about your progress. If you want to really live and build a great life, follow your path.

Why You Should Never Look Back Into Your Past

When you look into your past, you see your past, not your future. But you are no longer living in the past. You are living in the present. The present has the key to your future. The present is the way to where you are going. The present is the bridge between where you are and where you want to be. The Present is the connection between who you are and who you are becoming. It is important to respect your present. If you don’t live your present well, it will be difficult for you to live a better future. Because what you are doing right now is shaping your future, not your past.

Your past is your past. It is gone. The only good thing you can do with your past is to learn from it. You can visit your past for knowledge, but not to live there. No matter what you have done in your past, don’t look into your past with regret. Embrace it. It is not coming back to you. It is time to write a new chapter of your life. Now is the time to write a new story. And writing a new story of your life needs concentration. You need to concentrate on what you are doing in the present. Don’t go back to your old ways of doing things.

Instead of going back to your old life, why not go forward. There is no life in the past, but the future is full of opportunities. Why not take them? Remember, you are your boss. If you want to change your life, if you want to change your future, if you want to change the direction of your life, change what is not working for you. You can only do that in the present, not in the past. Your possibilities are in the present, not in the past. Your past is gone. Your present is now. Face your future with confidence, without fear, and with a loving heart. The choice is yours.
