Opportunity – Get Ready
When opportunity knocks you really do need to answer. But what if it never does? What if you don’t know it’s her? Then what?
I fear that I’ll miss my big shot because I didn’t take the little ones. I fear that I’ll miss my window one day. I’m afraid that somehow I’ll miss something I should’ve caught along the way. I feel like I’ll miss it, so I have to hurry to create it myself. So I have an urgency for things to happen for me now, but at the same time I don’t want to rush it and mess up.
As you can see, I’m struggling with balancing the two. I want it now. But I don’t want it badly enough to force it to where it’s not right. You know, like wanting the job promotion, but knowing you still need more experience before you’re truly ready for it.
I guess the only thing I can tell myself is to be as ready as I can be in any situation I’m in. Don’t wait to get ready for an opportunity you know of. Stay ready for every possibility of an opportunity. All I know is that I don’t want to rush where I’m at for the fear that I’ll never get there. But I don’t want to make it seem like it’s always just going to be waiting for me.
I have to get ready and stay ready.
