The saying “What we think, we become”, attributed to the Buddha, sums up well the idea that opportunities abound. When we are thinking proactively, being open to the idea of living our potential, then inevitably possibilities seem to be everywhere.
Being consciously focused on developing ourselves, we can use each moment to expand our awareness of life, trusting opportunities abound thanks to or regardless of our current situation.
Viewing life from a ‘doom and gloom’ perspective, on the other hand, closes us off from occasions which if embraced could be beneficial to us. The impact of our thinking on our outlook is tremendous, especially as most circumstances are rendered positive or negative by our approach to them.
Opportunities abound in our abundant world provided we accept them for what they are, rather than dismiss them in the hope the next will be ‘the perfect ones’. Passing up small opportunities today in the hope of having others tomorrow is a strategy not without risk.
That said, however you perceive the question thanks for being here right now. Opportunities abound to get in touch, you can leave a comment below or reach me through any of the various social media platforms listed below if you wish.
