Opportunities don’t happen—you create them”

Don’t you feel like you have so many goals & dreams that you want to achieve—yet, you never seem to actually make them a priority because you’re waiting for the “right time” to come by? Have you ever heard yourself saying “yeah, ONE DAY I’m going to do X, Y, Z (fill in the blank)” but find “one day” seeming like no day in the absolute near future?.

A popular question that people tend to ask me is, “Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?” with me replying back, like clockwork, with the long list of all the places and things I see myself accomplishing & doing professionally & personally. Yet, with a blink of an eye, 5 years flies right by and you’re still repeating that long list of dreams that seem to not have progressed even in the slightest because you’re still waiting for that “right time” to come knocking at your door.

We as a society have become so reliant on making sure our ”Yes’s” have guaranteed successes that we’ve become unwilling to try anything new if there’s a slight chance of failure. And what I’ve come to learn though is that while the unknown future might be scary, opportunities arise not when you’re waiting for the right action to arrive but when you MAKE the action take place—and then everything seems to fall into place.

S for this Monday’s #inspilaine, I encourage you to stop overthinking things and asking yourself “what if ___ happens” and just SAY. YES and see what comes from it. There’s so much opportunity & power that is right in front of us to grab, and it’s only up to us to put ourselves out there and take it. Does anyone else agree? 🙆🏼😍🦄🌈
