Do you take advantage of opportunities? Do you know what opportunity is; what it looks like? Dictionary.com describes opportunity as an appropriate or favorable time or condition; a situation or condition favorable for attainment of a goal; a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success. I tell my clients you can’t wait for your ship to come in at the airport. We may have an idea of what we want to happen but although we were given free will it must align itself with God’s will for our personal achievement. We must pray for God’ s guidance and meditate in order to listen for the guidance we have requested.
I have worked hundreds of personal inventories, dissecting my life into minute particles trying to separate the wheat from the chaff. In the inventory process I must be searching and thorough, moreover I must be fearless. Fearless is non-judgment. The only way I can remain fearless is to remove my judgment until the inventory is finished. When all the particles are down on paper I can evaluate the direction my life is going and see God’s handiwork. The greatest opportunities in my life, looked like problems at the time. People have been removed that stifled my growth and people were put in my life to teach me lessons.
Life is merely a classroom, whereas God’s lesson plan is personally laid out for me. I cannot judge myself against anyone if I am to find my personal spiritual journey. I am similar to some and different from others. We all have similar characteristics and yet in all the two hundred and five billion people who have cohabitated the planet I am the only me, with the only exact DNA. Opportunity is the ability to see God working in our minds and in our lives. The Bible says, “Judge not.” When you can see life neutral you are on your way, you are on your way to Nirvana. The best way to find your opportunity is to always remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
