We are all born into this world under various circumstances. Some of us fall into privilege, where essential needs are met and endless opportunities await us. Some of us fall into a realm of possibility, where we’re taught that education and hard work pays off because it will lead to the door of opportunity opening wide. Then some of us fall into a realm of hardship, where essential needs are unmet and opportunities seem bleak.
What each of these life circumstances have in common is opportunity, no matter whether opportunity is endless, wide open or bleak. “Everyone must row with the oars he has.” This is done by starting where you are – no matter how large or small the resources and begin planting a “seed” of work – moving little by little towards the possibility of opportunity.
Focusing on the vision placed inside of you and tapping into the knowledge resources within and outside of you will bring you to a place where you’ll never chase opportunity, but opportunity will follow and overtake you.
