The best opportunity

Whatever may have happened yesterday, today you have opportunity. After joy, disappointment, good fortune and bad, the opportunity of the present moment is yours.

Even if you’ve been speeding off on the wrong track, now you have the opportunity to get on the right one. Though you may have made plenty of mistakes, today is your opportunity to learn from them and to step forward in a positive way.

Give yourself a moment and feel a little bit of regret for missed opportunities. Then take the energy of that regret and turn it into positive action that will fulfill the promises of your current opportunities.

Your future has not been written yet. Now is when you write it.

The best opportunity is the one you fully appreciate and engage yourself in following. Opportunity is good to you when you are respectful of its power to change life for the better.

Whatever may have come or gone before, someone will make great strides with the opportunity that is now. Pick yourself up, get yourself going, and make that lucky someone you.

— Ralph Marston
