Anna-tude of the week: Seize opportunities…
I’ve had a lot of good opportunities in my life. Like most people, I’ve taken some and missed some, but being able to take advantage of as many opportunities as possible is important. We all have a tendency to overthink and get stuck in “analysis paralysis”. This wastes time and nothing gets accomplished.
Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, if it’s a great opportunity, just say yes and figure it out along the way. You will be amazed at all of the things that you can do and the positive outcomes that will arise. If for some reason it doesn’t work, that’s fine too. You are not a failure just because you failed. Setbacks happen to everyone who take chances. It is simply a part of living life to the fullest. Sometimes things go well and sometimes they don’t. So don’t make a failure into this a life problem or into your identity.
The first step is to understand what you want out of life. If you know what you want out of life, your mind will focus in on that and be on the lookout when an opportunity arises. Sometimes just one opportunity can mean the difference between an extraordinary life and a mediocre one.
I want to follow every dream and at least try everything that I want to try. Even if I fail, I’ll always know how it turned out, rather than living with the regret of having been too scared to try.
Take a risk and do something different. It may just change your life and circumstances for the better. Think about it.
