Create Your Own Opportunity


In today’s economy you really need to create your own opportunity. If you are waiting for President Obama to knock on your door to give you an opportunity then you are going to be disappointed. Opportunities will not knock on your door you must get out of your bed and go after it. Most people will miss out on their opportunity because they are afraid to go after it. When one door closes in front of your face God will open a new door for you. A person had told me that the doors don’t have feet. I had told that person yeah that is true but you do have feet and you must turn that knob on that door and walk through toward your new opportunity. You must have the faith of the size of that little mustard seed. You have to pray and put one foot before the other and step out on faith to accomplish your dream. God will surely help you in moving all obstacles in your life and supply you with what you need to succeed. You start to create your own opportunity by networking. You must network with others to build solid relationships. Do you know that successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking “what’s in it for me”. Part of creating opportunities that you must be willing to help others. You must be willing to help others.

When you are thinking about creating your own opportunity ask yourself the following questions. What are my passions? What is my hidden talents? Do I want to go back to school to learn a new profession? Do I want to start my own business? Should I write my book? This is the perfect moment to evaluate yourself to see what you want to next to create your own opportunity. Life is a gamble and you must take risks. You must get out of that comfort zone to receive those new opportunities. When you are stuck in your comfort zone then you will miss out on new opportunities. There are always opportunities everywhere but you have to go out there to look for them. You must create your own opportunity. 


It’s Time For You To Let Go Of Your Past

There is a time when you need to let go when you know that you should. Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. Love is worth fighting for, but you can’t be the only one fighting.  People need to fight for you too.  If they don’t then you eventually have to move on and realize that what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you.Some relationships and situations just can’t be fixed. If you tried to force someone to go back to a toxic relationship then it will only get worse.  Holding on is being brave but letting go and moving on is often what makes us stronger and happier. You need to make a decision to embrace the next step in your life. You can either hold on to the past or you can create your own happiness today.  Never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart.  Every day is a new beginning and a new ending.  Embrace it, make the best of it, smile, and keep looking straight ahead.  And don’t forget, a smile doesn’t always mean a person is happy right now; sometimes it simply means they are strong enough to face their problems going forward. And remember that your mind is your private sanctuary; do not allow the negative beliefs of others to occupy it.  Your skin is your barrier; do not allow others to get under it.  Take control of your boundaries and what you allow yourself to absorb from others. Never let someone’s opinion become your reality.  Never sacrifice who you are because someone else has a problem with it.  Love the person that who you are on the inside and on the outside.  No one else has the power to make you feel small unless you give them that power to do it.  You are the only one who can create your happiness.

Whatever had happened to you in your past is in the past. No matter how chaotic the past has been for you, your future is a clean fresh start and wide open slate. You are not your past habits or your past failures. You are not how others have at one time treated you. You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. You are only what you are doing right now at this moment. Don’t let your past hold you in the past. Don’t let your past guide you. Don’t become a slave to your past. Let go of the past and move on to your future. Dream and give yourself permission to envision a new you that you will choose to be that you know that you can be.” Please do focus on what you have and not on what you don’t have in your life. You are who you are and you have what you have right now. It can’t be that bad at all otherwise without God in your life you will not be here right now. You are blessed and most people will love to be in your shoes right now. Just be grateful what you do have and think of something that will inspire you to move forward. Hold on to your faith in God and focus on his blessings. God will provide. You may feel that you don’t have much or anything at all but you are in your right mind that will inspire you. God is all that you need to help you to move forward in your life.
