Default You have to make your own opportunities.

You have to make your own opportunities.
Your future is not a matter of chance.
It's a matter of your choice.
It's not something you wait for.
It's something you must actively pursue.

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities.
Seize common occasions and make them great.
Opportunity can come disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.

Start today, right where you are.
Distant fields will always appear greener.
Yet, golden opportunities are all around you.

You can live a great dream if you pursue it.

Great post. We do have to create our own opportunities. I'm in the process of creating mine right now.

Loved the post. I am also working on making my dream a reality. I am tired of just sitting here and daydreaming about what I want to do. I've finally decided to take action and get something done. If it doesn't work out, that's okay. At least I know I gave it a try.

Default Problems are NOTHING but NEW Opportunities!

It doesn't make sense but it is so true that problems are nothing but a stepping stone
to get you where you want to be! Instead of looking at your circumstance and saying
"Why?" Look at it and say "What?"

Don't concentrate on what you can't do but on what you can do! This is how you will
get to the next step!

My motto is similar to that. That is exactly how I see things.

Default Living the Dream

An opportunity is like a dream except that if you stay focused and work at it daily it becomes a reality!
