We Are Not Denied!


Opportunities are not missed because we are denied; opportunities are missed because we wait, wait and wait for the perfect time. - Eileen Gonzalez

For some this concept may be hard to accept yet our reluctance to accept it will not take away its truth. Each of us has a purpose in life, a calling. For some it may be teaching, educating, training. For others it may be of service, etc. We know what our calling is, because we are driven to it. It wants to become reality through us. Yet it will not force itself upon us....it will nag us, it will appear in our dreams, make us feel miserable for not moving toward it; however it will be up to each of us to ultimately make it happen. Opportunity will show up in many forms, someone will make an offer, invite us, or we may simply see or hear about it. Sometimes we will be nagged into taking a chance which we may entertain or dismiss. Just know we will come face to face with opportunity. How many times will opportunity show up? It will keep coming and coming until you do something. How much potential do you have to succeed? That depends on when you finally decide to take it and commit to it. Do you realize that we miss out on opportunity everyday, be it in our careers, education, love life, etc. We miss out of it not because we are meant to miss out but because our fears are stronger than our commitment to our happiness. You may think, "I am not scared". Well that could be true, unless you realize that over thinking, second guessing, doubt, uncertainty are all part of fear. You see, fear does not always jump at you and scare the crap out of you. If it did, we would easily recognize it and deal with it. But fear creeps up on us and it does so in the form of emotions, visions of the past and visions of the "What if". Oh yeah, the "what if". It's funny because the same energy we put into envisioning the "What if it don't work", we could put into envisioning the "What If if does". But to do that we need to push past our limited thinking and stop always thinking in chaos. Oh that is another word...."Chaos". In order for creation to happen, there need be chaos, you see when it appears, change must happen to restore order. Yet order will not come to restore all that was, it will come to open the door to new beginnings, to new opportunities. It will do away with the old and make way for the future. Yes the future which does not exist, haha; yet in order to create this future we must be committed in the "NOW". We must do everything we can do in this very moment. We must be willing to explore, to test, to push, to become. We must be willing to feel, love, cry fear and strength. We must be willing to becoming uncomfortable and open to change. We must be of the mindset which recognizes that what was no longer is.

Opportunities are not missed because we are denied; opportunities are missed because we wait, wait and wait for the perfect time. - Eileen Gonzalez
