What is opportunity for you? A chance for advancement, progress or profit; a favorable circumstance or occasion.
Opportunity for me always a positive word, it feels with new things, a bit of hope, refreshment and brings a weird feeling.
As human we always find opportunity; in the business, in the relationship, friendship and even when we do our daily activities.
When I move to a new city, it’s an opportunity for me to meet new people, making new friends, look for new venue. When I move to a new office, its another opportunity to meet different co-worker, accounts, learn new products, and many more.
We always seek for opportunity, because we want progress, we long for advancement and we strive for profit.
Opportunity came without giving any permission; it just came, knocking on your door. What should we do? Then, we shall be prepared.
Be loyal for small things; do better in everything you’ve been trust, handle people & things properly, don’t underestimate others, and stay humble. There, opportunity comes and calling you. Not because your perfect but simply because you are you.
“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” Albert Einstein
“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” Mother Teresa
“It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.” Anthony Robbins
“Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute.” G. B. Stern quotes
Life is a game. How we deal with it and face it, it will depend on each one of us. How we play the game smartly, vigorously or carelessly, it is our choice, it is our decision that we take every day.
“What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.”-anonymous
In the game, we meet another player, he, she, they, play their game. Emotions developed, affection appears, and love set in, hurt turns up, then pain arise.
We supposedly love people and play the game, why we tend to do the other way around. Use things to love, help, and care for people but we got it wrong. We prefer things more than people, we care for something not feelings, we respect currency rather than wisdom, we choose famous than sharing.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928)
The time we start caring for things rather than people, we will slowly lose our hearts, passion, compassion, and feelings. We become heartless, cold, and remote person. People will take distance; they prefer not to get hurt. And in the end of day, we shocked to find ourselves alone, we’re not connected with others, no one care, no one understand and the day feel so empty, the things that matter is not important anymore, the possessions is not pleased anymore, we longed for acceptance, caring, touch and we look for love.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.- Anonymous
Life offers us many seasons. Season for friendship, for love, understanding, patience, challenge, and season for triumph. Whatever the season we playing, we shall cherish them, treasure the people we met along the journey, appreciate the lesson that the life gave, value every moment and be grateful for all, because after all we chose to play the game and love the people. Indeed.
