Opportunity - Take the Shot!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 4, 2013, 4:49 PM
Whenever you see an opportunity, don't think and just go for it. You miss the shot that you don't take anyway. Why waste another second regretting yet another "what if..." moment? 

Your future is full of possibilities. You are where you are today because the decisions you made. Never think, "Oh, that's just one time thing, not a big deal. Maybe next time..." This kind of thinking will get you killed, seriously. Watch the movie Butterfly Effect and read on...

Our life is a series of events closely linked together. Every move you make will affect your future, near and distant future. Have you ever thought, "I'm glad that I did this. Otherwise, that wouldn't happen." Or "Dad gonmit! I wish I did that right then. Stupid me!" It's all good as long as you reflect on your experience and gain a moment of clarity. Shall you repeat history, chicken out and not take any risk? Or man up and own life like a boss?

"If you don't plan, you WILL fall into someone else's plan. And how much have they planned for you? Not much." said Jim Rohn

When the opportunities come (and they will), you better be prepared. By "prepared," I mean to be a person of quality, character, to be somebody you admire, completely and genuinely. In the critical moment, when the pressure is on, your true self will be revealed and everyone will see it. 

Kid yourself no more. If you suck, admit it. The good news is you can get better. How? Get smarter. How? Try new things. How? Stop asking and do it already because at the end, life is a do-it-yourself project. Own your life. That's your number one priority and responsibility.

Happy 4th of July, the Fortune Cookie says, "I'm poisonous.....j/k Now live full or I'll get you next time."
