Okay, I was just three paragraphs into a rant when I realized I could be writing something truly positive and uplifting this week that might inspire whoever should happen across this blog.
I will, however, keep the same title since it is generic enough and fits in a weird way.
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
This quote has been amazingly accurate in my life up to this point. But I do feel like your faith in good things happening in your life and the willingness to accept opportunity when it comes along to create more opportunities for you.
I have shared my dream of moving to Costa Rica and due to some changes, it might be delayed for a while. However, when the changes came up, I chose to believe despite my knowing how that an opportunity would present itself to accomplish the same goal.
Out of the blue, I received an email that I took as fortune smiling upon me. I talked it over with my wife and decided to respond, not within the bounds of reality as I understood it, but proposing instead reality as I wished it to be.
Maybe this is not the answer that I was seeking but I do want to say, you don’t get if you don’t ask. Don’t be constrained by your limited mindset of how the world works. Shape it as you will!
Another astonishing thing that has happened to me is a recent influx of side jobs since I asked for it a few blog posts ago. One opportunity is directly responsible for that post but 2 other clients that came from other sources.
So ASK for what you want, GET READY for what you desire and then CATCH the wave!
