I live my life with the utmost faith in opportunity.
There is often a misconception about this statement. People assume the meaning is simple: having faith in life’s path for you. While this is part of having faith in opportunity, it does not encompass the entire meaning. You, as a decision maker, have more of a significant impact on life’s path than you may realize.
Life is broken up into experiences. While they are all unique – in location, interaction and purpose – they are not always random. Proactivity and mindfulness in decision making often times mold the experiences we have. Faith in opportunity is one’s ability to understand that the intentional actions he or she has taken in the past, results in opportunities for personal growth in the future.
I understand that it’s important to know what I want to achieve and where I desire to be years down the road in my life. With this knowledge I have been able to orient my actions and the decisions I make to move myself in a progressive direction. You can do the same. By understanding the support mechanisms that exist in life and acting upon them, favorable opportunities are bound to appear.
There are several tactics I would suggest that allow you to take advantage of these support mechanisms:
It is inevitable that life will provide you with many types of choices. Some will be directly related to your desires and some may seem to have no correlation at all. It is important to remain proactive and mindful throughout all of them.
With this mindset, you will capitalize on the support mechanisms and apply them to your decisions. Ultimately, the consequences of your actions will create new opportunities. These opportunities, when taken advantage of, lead you in the direction of your goals and ambitions; they lead you towards the person you want to be; they lead you towards the person you know you are capable of being.
All it takes is faith in yourself and faith in the future.
