Opportunity comes fast and furious--Are you prepared?

fast and furious graphicHave you ever noticed that when opportunity arises, it's never in "our time"? Rather, it comes at sometimes the most "inopportune" times - meaning that we're often not prepared to receive it and use it to our advantage.

Here's a great example: An individual I know (we'll call him Dan) had a fairly-good career, but he was pining to move to another part of the country to be near the rest of his family. Dan had begun submitting resumes to different employers for a couple of months, when he suddenly got a phone call. In a twist of "unexpected" fate, he was offered the position he'd been trying to attain. Now Dan had to reshape all his current plans because the opportunity came so quickly. It took Dan a few days to make his decision to move, but only after he was caught so off guard. But was he really? You see, Dan had made the active decision months earlier to pursue another career. The intention was planted, and as time unfolded, his actions ruled his outcome - those actions transformed into his acquiring the job he sought.

Many times, we plant seeds of intention unintentionally. What I mean by that is sometimes we start thinking about what we want; except when we do, we have planted a seed of intention. Intention turns to action, and action results in an equal reaction. The same holds true for ill thoughts. Unlike Dan, there are some people who bring negative results into their lives because they plant unhealthy seeds in their minds. If you can think it, it can happen. The whole point of the matter is that whatever you think, you become. So if your true intention and desire is to land the job of your dreams, you will subconsciously begin acting on that thought's behalf. The same holds true for pessimism and procrastination. If you think that you "can't" perform a certain job, or "I'll never own a house," or "I can't get that promotion," etc. -- then guess what? You won't.

Opportunity always comes fast and furious but we have to be ready to receive it. When we plant the seed of intention - for whatever that planting a seed imagemay be - we must realize that it will come. It may not magically appear overnight, but when opportunity does come knocking at life's door, you've got to be mentally and intuitively prepared by opening your mind to the potential and blessings that are ready to come into your life.

What are you thinking at this moment? If you're like Dan, you're ready to acquire prosperity, wealth, and happiness. You can't afford to not be prepared for opportunity. You know that whatever it is that your heart desires you can attain it. But it begins with a seed of intention, and that intention requires action on your part. How far are you willing to go to land the job you've always wanted? How deep are you willing to dive to find that buried treasure? How long are you going to keep stopping yourself from achieving success? It really boils down to you. You are a walking billboard indicative of your life. What you project is just as important as what you take into your mind's eye. When your perception of life is in tune with your focus of intention, you begin to rapidly increase your chances at opportunity. Go ahead - plant your seed for opportunities today. I know you can, and so do you.
