OPPORTUNITY – How many opportunities do you think you may have missed ? And how many opportunities did you see, but you let the train leave the station without you ! and have regretted. The big question here is, Do you know the reason why ? We all make excuses, over the why, I say excuses, because if we maybe reflect on that decision now, and we were honest…. we would see all the holes in our reasoning, they can range from, the children were young, the timing was just not right, it was not financially possible, we would of had to leave our families, the distance was to far, and I could go on and on. You see we all really use the same familiar excuses, where the real answer could of been , we were afraid ! lacked courage and confidence in oursleves, family pressure was to much, would not take the risk. Opportunity does not come to us everyday, I am not saying it will not appear again, it may, but you have to know now that if it does, are you ready to take action ? If you are still waiting for your first or maybe second opportunity, you have to be in control, ready and be in the mind set. You have to have it clear that the decisions you would make, would be yours, not that of your family (I am referring here to parents etc.,) of course your new immediate family would be part of your decision making counsel. There is no opportunity without risk, nobody can guarantee you that, you have to have enough self confidence to know you will give it your very best shot and succeed, remember failure is not something you should give a lot of thought to, but if you do, it is not a bad thing, it just adds to your experience. Children should never be the excuse, because I can tell you in all honesty, when is a good time with children !! We can always come up with reasons, school, college, university, uprooting there is never a perfect time, but you know if you are happy and you do well with your given opportunity, they are happy and feel secure, you set there well being. Change is good for everyone. It is amazing that when we have a vision of where we want to go and we are totally sure of this, things start to fall into place, even finances also appear, where you may of given up hope, your job is to be mind-set ready for your opportunity and be ready to act on it. Don’t let that train leave without you.
