|It's all about opportunities, they come and go..only the best can retain them...|
OPPORTUNITIES Not very often we realize the importance of opportunities in life. In fact, not many of us know what an opportunity actually means. All we understand is to grab one, which comes our way, and lead the way again as life is. There are different kinds of opportunities, which are self-created and the one, which comes our way on its own. An opportunity that comes your way is a little easy to deal with. All you have to do is to keep on the right track and keep on improving. But an opportunity that you create needs a lot of homework and constant development. It's like a child going to school who keeps hopes and has certain dreams. Such a child is dependent on parents, educationists, society and a lot of other factors for his/her growth and development. So is the case of an opportunity that you create. You sit and jot down the finer points after discussing with yourself and other people, as to what is that you actually want. Based on the feedback that you get and what your mind allows, you have to work out priorities in life and create a platform for yourself. Here you think of the pros and cons & the various factors that may develop or hamper your career path. At times, you come across people, who have come across this way and it depends on you how you harness information from them and utilize it to the best. This is where you nurture your contacts and try and deal with situations. At this stage we try our best to be seen with successful people and most of the times forget to absorb their way of working and thinking. Most of the times when these people are not able to provide you solutions because of their own time constraints or nature, you feel disheartened and get off the track. But the idea is to make yourself comfortable with the world and to understand that the entire world will not be comfortable with you. Let us have the explaination with a simple example. Consider a family with two kids. Each one of them behaves differently, though born in the same family. Even one child might not feel comfortable with the other one. And so there will be critics, there will be differences of opinions and yet there will be no response at times, but the work must go on. That is where you get a feeling that you have to make things happen and not leave them the way they are. Your focus now is to get across people and understand their frame of mind, thereby improving your own scope of work. Here is when you make an action plan for your development and sustain pressures from critic's etc. If you feel that the situation is still difficult to handle, try and take help of the people around you. Yes, there will be too many answers, but then it's again your final decision. Nobody can force you to take his/her own decision. But remember the fact that there has to be conclusions drawn before you make a final decision. Given with the society we are into and what we can give to the world, there has to be a clear demarcation line between your expectations and actual outcome. It's not wrong to think too big, provided you have or can create the resources required. And once you decide and get into the mainstream, you personally feel that you will be able to organize resources and nurture them. This is where you will be able to understand the exact meaning of an opportunity and how good it is for you. What all you need to live a balanced life: Read the best literature and magazines and keep yourself aware of current affairs and events. Be socially active, have lots of friends but a few confidants. Be active intellectually, all you need to do is to have many interests. Read, watch, observe and learn. Have fun and enjoy yourself. Bear a good sense of humor, particularly in laughing at yourself and not at others expense. Bear a healthy regard and honesty for yourself Tweet
