It’s how we respond to opportunity that defines us. It’s how we identify opportunity that defines us. Some people spend an entire lifetime looking, waiting patiently for the right opportunity. Others make a life out of creating opportunity. Some opportunity is good right from the start. Others can end up being a distraction from what you originally intended. Many opportunities will be obvious and presented in a way that is hard to miss. Others are like diamonds in the rough and they must be mined,searched out. No matter what the case, if we are willing to take a step of faith, to respond as best we can to each scenario life presents, we will find ourselves in the middle of opportunity more than we would expect.
I’m a firm believer that you can set yourself up for opportunity. By simply focusing on your strengths and putting into practice what’s really inside you to do, you prepare for moments when all you have is required of you. Opportunity is not always a pleasant presentation. There are people who took the tragedy in their lives and turned it into opportunity. Jesus often spoke highly of taking what you have and making the most of it. Paul, ma ny times in his letters, would encourage his friends to see their trials as blessings.
It is evident that our responses to life on a daily basis will actually create opportunities. It’s for us to discern which opportunities will lead us in the best direction.
