Opportunity in Every Moment

"People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning." - Attributed to Dennis the Menace

I would change this quote to say that opportunity is there in every moment.  Every moment, you have a choice.  Are you going to choose to do what you know needs to be done?  Or are you going to choose to sit in front of the TV longer?  Are you going to choose to create the life you want?  Or are you going to choose to wait on the sidelines?

Are you going to choose to be happy?  Or are you going to choose to wallow in self-doubt, self-pity, or depression?  Yes, in some moments, it's a lot harder to choose the happiness - sometimes, you may continue to choose sadness.  And that's ok, because in the next moment, you get to make another choice, a different choice if you want.  Where you are right now and who you are right now is exactly that - right now.  In the next moment, you can choose to be someone else, a different version of yourself.  Who do you want that different version to be?  Who are you going to be in this moment?

Are you going to continue reading this blog?  Or are you going to take this opportunity to choose to do something else?  What would your ideal self do in this moment?  What opportunity would your ideal self jump on in this moment?

Don't pass the opportunities by - even if they are dressed in work clothes.  Some people wait for the opportunities to come - others see the opportunity in every moment.
