I love opportunities. I grab them with both hands most of the time. I never regret letting go of the ones I don’t take up.
Some of it comes from being a risk taker, I love life and am happy to explore it fully, but I don’t feel I am in any way cavalier in my attitudes towards it. I just love new experiences and I love adventures!
Taking lots of small opportunities is often better than waiting for that great big one to come along, because it may not! And the small one may directly lead to something much bigger, but if you don’t take the first one the second may never come along.
There’s a great saying by Harry Truman that I love:
‘A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties’.
Sometimes it is easy to spend so much time looking at the closed doors around you that you cannot see the one that has opened in front of you.
Enjoy the journey!
