"How much I missed, simply because I was afraid of missing it." - Paulo Coelho

“How much I missed, simply because I was afraid of missing it.” – Paulo Coelho

Next time you see an opportunity of a lifetime and you’re questioning whether you should act on it, remember this quote. So many people including Paulo Coelho (Author of The Alchemist) had many missed opportunities because they were scared they’d miss the mark. No matter how small your chance of success may seem, if it’s important to you, just take the shot! Otherwise, you’ll always look back on the opportunities that you missed.

"Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss." - Eric Roth

“Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.” – Eric Roth

Another important way for you to look at opportunities. Everything you’re doing is affecting your life. If you decide not to take any sort of action or make any sort of choice, well, you’re still taking an action and making a choice. So the next time you decide to do nothing about a great opportunity, ask yourself ‘how is this going to define my life?’

"People regret not achieving enough success in life, they should regret missing many opportunities." - Amit Kalantri

“People regret not achieving enough success in life, they should regret missing many opportunities.” – Amit Kalantri

Sometimes you can be so dead set on being successful that you let a whole range of other opportunities pass you by. While you should seek success in whichever form is right for you, don’t keep your eye so centered on the prize that you forget to see opportunities all around you. While you might end up with a lot of success, you may realize that success came with the sacrifice of many great opportunities.

"Don't fear death, fear the unlived life." - Natalie Babbitt

“Don’t fear death, fear the unlived life.” – Natalie Babbitt

If you’re going to set any of these as your phone background, this is definitely the most powerful. To be put simply, when you let opportunities go, you’re literally letting life get away from you. If you let the majority of your opportunities go, then you’re going to live an extremely unfulfilled and unlived life. If this is ringing bells in your ears then let it be a warning sign to you. Stop letting opportunities go by, while it may not seem a big deal day to day. You’ll soon realize that when you add up all those days that’s going to be a whole lifetime of missed opportunity.

"Our biggest regrets are for the things we have done, but for the things we haven't done." - Chad Michael Murray

“Our biggest regrets are for the things we have done, but for the things we haven’t done.” – Chad Michael Murray

It’s impossible to live your life with absolutely no regrets. Sometimes you do end up making a mistake in your life that you deeply regret. But you have to weigh up, what regret is worse to you: the regret of making a mistake, or the regret of never trying? If you can look yourself in the eye at the end of your life and honestly say you were glad you didn’t try because you never made any mistakes then that’s fair enough. But I don’t think there are many people in this world that would rather give up their life to being comfortable rather than being happy.

Here’s another thing about an opportunity. It doesn’t always show up guns blazing letting you know it’s arrived. A lot of the time if you’re not looking you might not even see opportunity. But I’ll tell you one thing. If you want to find opportunity, look for it in your struggles, in your hard times. Because that’s normally where you’ll find opportunity. However, while that is a great place to start looking don’t focus all of your attention there. Just keep a watchful eye on the world and your mind and you’ll be noticing opportunities in no time!

Just like a tiny acorn produces a giant oak tree, sometimes a tiny opportunity can result in an amazing enterprise. If you’re not sure about going after an opportunity then you should take a moment to think about all the possibilities that could result in seizing it. You owe it to yourself, and the world to try and do something amazing.

Also remember, never focus so hard on waiting for one opportunity that you let so many more pass you by. I’m sure there is one thing that you’d absolutely love to do. But you shouldn’t let that stop you from enjoying your life right now! Opportunities are always coming and going. So don’t allow yourself to wait so long for one opportunity that you miss 20 more.
