If life doesn't offer a game worth playing, then invent a new one.
Anthony J. D'Angelo
If you were offered a chance of a lifetime, a golden opportunity to live your life exactly the way you would script it, what would you do? Would you jump at the chance of making your life a dream come true or would you simply turn away? Surprisingly, many people choose the latter.
Without ever realizing it, many people inadvertently turn down offers to fulfill their dreams virtually every day of their lives. Thats right every single day! Instead of recognizing the boundless opportunity that constantly passes their direction, theyre generally way too distracted to even notice. Theyre so busy focusing on the things they dont have or cant do that they fail to see and seize the chance of a lifetime.
If you haven't the strength to impose your own terms upon life, you must accept the terms it offers you.
T. S. Eliot
The game of life long ago lost its luster for these folks. Instead of jumping at the chance to enrich their lives and boldly chase their dreams, making their lives everything they have ever imagined they could be, they choose to lose by default.
Why would anyone choose to lose when they could just as easily embrace winning as a way of life? Theres one reason and one reason only because they stop believing that their dreams can come true. While they dream about the good times and the good things in life, they can no longer SEE themselves fulfilling these dreams. Instead of boldly grabbing the best life has to offer, they meekly accept whatever crumbs life begrudgingly tosses their way.
Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson or delight that moment has to offer.
Barbara De Angelis
Without a doubt, what you see is what you get in life. If you tend to focus on problems, theres a better than average chance that all sorts of problems will weave their way into your life. Before long, you begin feeling overrun and overwhelmed, drowning in a tidal wave of adversity. Instead of thriving, you struggle to simply survive. You never see opportunity because youre too busy just trying to stay afloat.
On the other hand, when you set your sights on something much better, you free yourself to focus your efforts on the best life has to offer. And you better believe life has plenty to offer us all. Now, with your eyes wide open, you begin seeing all sorts of opportunities where problems once resided. As your outlook on life improves, youll be astounded at all of the good fortune that makes its way to your door.
Focus on where you want to go.
John Lubbock once said, What we see depends mainly on what we look for. He couldnt have said it better. If you truly want your life to be everything youve ever dreamed it could be, then you must constantly be on the lookout for the best life has to offer.
Then, when one of lifes super sensational opportunities avails itself, dont just stand there and refuse to move. Come on, why in the world would you say no to an offer you shouldnt refuse? Instead of waiting or hesitating, choose to make your life everything it could be and should be by choosing to move. The best things in life are truly free if you only have the courage to act.
The Bottom Line: Constantly be on the lookout for opportunities to make your life better and then grab them with both hands when you find them.
