Every day brings new opportunities
Every day brings new opportunities and every day we undeniably ignore them. We can’t be expected to participate in everything that comes our way, but regrets creep upon us and all we can think about is what might have been. The mind likes to wander at the most inconvenient times.
In hindsight, you might find yourself over-analyzing the situation, which means you’d probably see that the grass is greener on the other side. Insecurities about your current situation can plant these ideas in your head. If you had only gone a different route, then maybe things would be different. That isn’t always the case, but we sure do think like that a lot. Sometimes, you might pass up on an opportunity because the timing wasn’t right for you and then see the success it brings to another person. Undoubtedly, there would be some level of jealousy there.
You might even lay awake at night at the thought of missing out on an opportunity because you couldn’t recognize it or you were too hesitant to accept it. In life, we will always have regrets about our career and personal lives, but how do you move on from passing a great opportunity?
Well, first you have to understand start, not every opportunity is meant for you. No one knows you better than yourself and if the timing wasn’t right, then it wasn’t time for you to embark on that path. Logically, if you are not prepared to complete a task, then you wouldn’t because you don’t have that capacity. It’s that simple. The only thing you can do is look for other opportunities.
Missing out on one thing does not guarantee that you can’t find success elsewhere. If you weren’t able to spot the characteristics of an opportunity, then start creating your own. Venturing out on your own gives you a great deal of self-awareness and awareness of the ecosystem you want to plant yourself into. This could start as a small project that you expand over time. Don’t go into this project with too many expectations, use it to burn fuel and get your creativity flowing. People help those who help themselves, when you get traction and play an active role in getting yourself out there, you’ll find new opportunities.
Independent ventures also allow you to create your own opportunities on your own terms. It’s also great to analyze what these opportunities would have given you and how there would be possible. You might have missed it, but you can still learn from it. Maybe you can recreate the same benefits, but on your own terms? There is nothing more powerful than taking things into your own hand after losing out.
With that being said, Don’t become complacent with your work. If you want to be successful, then a great deal of work is vital. We can look at the past through rose-colored glasses and assume that one missed opportunity would have made us a multimillionaire, but if a deal seems too good to be true, then it probably is.
