I Recently had the opportunity to speak to one of my good friends about this and that and for some reason or the other we ended up speaking about 'seeing opportunities'. There was a slight debate on whether getting that 'perfect job' is really just Lady Luck coming your way or is it fate knocking at your door? Or maybe, is it an opportunity that presented itself and that person just applied and went for it?
When you are presented with a task/opportunity that you know will benefit you, like a computer course, do you grab such an opportunity? or do you sit back thinking 'Hey if it's mine, it's mine' and wait aimlessly for it to come to you while everyone else applies for it in your office?
When an opportunity arises in which you can enter a FAB competition, do you go 'Errrr,, Well, I don't wanna enter, I'll probably not win'?. While everyone says 'YES! who do i need to mail in order to win this?'
The reality of the matter is that: 1. You might fail miserably at Excell (I know this from experience) & 2. You might feel SO embarrassed because you poured your heart out to a leading magazine explaining why you should win a competition and in the end, you don't win.
In the same breath... 1. You might be GREAT at excell and graduate at the top of your class which will look GREAT on your resume & 2. You might win that Hairstyling Iron that costs thousands!
You see? Life can either go two ways. You win or you lose. But that is where it ends. But do not stand there and WONDER what could have been and what should have been. Take risks and be prepared to lose, and also to win.
Take the pledge to say YES to every opportunity which presents itself and see where it takes you <3
