How often do you pay attention to the ad/links when you’re in Gmail? I rarely do so. I happened to glance up just now and read this:
Funny Quote of the Day – “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” – Milton Berle
For me, at this particular point in time, and specifically for today, this quote resonates with me. (serendipitous? maybe) As someone who’s actively job-searching and networking, I’m discovering that you can’t always wait for opportunities to present themselves to you. (At times, you can — maybe before the job market took a downward spiral — but if you want to move forward, and keep moving forward, you have to put yourself out there and seek opportunities on your own.) If you’re lucky enough to come across a great opportunity, run with it. I’m thinking of doing just that these days…why not? Maybe it’s time I make my door.
Thoughts of fear, failure, or uncertainty shouldn’t hold you back. Sometimes the unknown has propelled me to some of my most rewarding life experiences…in school, work, and my personal life.
For anyone else on the job search, or life search for that matter, think about building that door…and as Mike Holmes would say, stay in hustle mode.
Imagine you saw a colour in your dream, which you have never seen before. It doesn’t consist of any colours or shades that you know. Trying to describe that colour would be as difficult as trying to believe that there is enough love & compassion in the world so every human can feel happiness.
Do you think this is possible? Can you do this? I think some people would have more difficulty than others…maybe it’s a matter of how much strength and faith we carry in ourselves…
Sometimes we take things for granted…at times, we tend to put too much emphasis on the ‘big things’ in life, and we probably don’t STOP to enjoy the little things – which, if you think about it, add up to color your experiences and make things better and brighter.
Here’s a refreshing blog about all the great ‘little’ things that make life good. 1000 Awesome Things counts down to 1000 awesome things, with a new post every day. Now, I wonder what happens when it hits 1,000?
