“Too often, the opportunity knocks, but by the time you push back the chain, push back the bolt, unhook the two locks and shut off the burglar alarm, it’s too late.” Rita Coolidge
When opportunity knocks, open the door and welcome it in because it may not knock a second time. This is so true in life whether it be with a Business or a Personal Relationship.
“Sometimes opportunity knocks, but most of the time it sneaks up and then quietly steals away”…Doug Larson
Many often take far too long to way up the pros and cons of an opportunity and lose out completely on that particular opportunity. Conversely, others rush on in before giving the opportunity some sensible consideration. It is actually a very fine balance between the two and one that I have more often than not, tipped the wrong way.
But you know, overall I would say that I have enjoyed the journey and whilst I have been burnt, bitten,stung and hung, drawn and quartered at times 😉 I have NO REGRETS! Of course I have experienced HUGE learning curves but never regrets!
I would rather have had the experience in order to learn and grow from…. rather than to sit back in a shell and wonder ‘what if’.
The main issue with making decisions about ‘opportunities’ is the constant battle between the heart and the head. It is an age old battle that our inner self struggles with and one that causes endless debate amongst us.
However a third modifying influence joins the furore as referee between so called logic of the brain and the emotional decision of the heart…… That is what we call the ‘gut feeling’ or Soul. I have found that if I truly listen to my Soul then I will make the right decision. It may be wrong timing in relation to your current situation however reach out NOW and at the very least, hold onto the possibilityrather than miss out forever!!
