Knock, Knock

b2ap3_thumbnail_MP900411728This isn’t a joke!  Quite to the contrary it’s serious business!  After all, you’re the one I’m talking about, here.  It’s your life and no one else’s so it’s solely up to you to make something of it.

Think about where you are; where you want to go; and how you feel about all of that.  If you feel pretty good about it, then maybe what I have to say is of little value to you.  On the other hand, if there are some doubts, well, read on.

Where you are and where you want to go is nothing more than having taken advantage of certain opportunities in the past and looking for additional opportunities in the future.  Feeling good about your life is directly driven by the opportunities you exercise.  The more opportunities you seek, find and act on the greater your sense of self-actualization.

The whole experience of a fulfilling life or not is about opportunities won or lost.  And, you’re the one who has to take responsibility for creating those opportunities.  Life isn’t about impassively serving-up opportunities.  It’s about you knocking on the right doors and being willing to step through them.

It’s as Milton Berle said:  “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”  Knock, knock!
