Missed opportunity

It’s frustrating when you realize you’ve missed a big opportunity. Though you cannot go back and change the past, there is something you can do.

You can choose to transform that regret for a missed opportunity into enthusiasm and commitment for seizing a new, even better opportunity. You can decide to look forward, realizing the importance of what you missed, determined to find another path to the same kind of fulfillment.

Don’t be envious of those who had the foresight to grab hold of the opportunity that you missed. Instead, be positively inspired by the success they have enjoyed.

Now it is your time to move toward a similar success. Whatever may have or have not happened in the past, now is the time to act.

Specific opportunities will come and go. And new opportunities are always available to those who are willing to do the difficult and challenging work they demand.

Choose to make your own best opportunity from the way things are right now. With your focused commitment, truly great things are possible.
