No, I’m not talking about the opportunity to buy my course at a discount.
I’m not even talking about the time you had the chance to go to that concert but decided to stay home.
I’m not referring to that one time you chickened out going on that roller coaster that all your friends said was amazing.
Or how about the time you missed the opportunity to go up to that girl who you later found out was into you?
Missed opportunities are a part of life and we can either choose to learn from them or we can continue to let them happen.
But that’s not what I’m talking about.
I’m talking about now.
What will you do now?
I’m not trying to get all philosophical or Buddhist monk on all of you here.
I don’t want to come off as a spiritual leader who is trying to get you to “live in the moment.”
But from time to time I think it’s important to recognize our places in the world.
It’s important to recognize the mere odds of us even being born is in the trillions.
Then when you put together where you live, circumstance, etc etc, it’s almost beyond measure.
I mean we’re not even supposed to be here.
So what does this all mean?
It means that there isn’t a time in your life where you can’t accomplish something.
It literally means that.
Think about that one for a second.
There isn’t one moment in your entire life where you don’t have an opportunity.
I truly believe that.
Even in sadness.
Even in pain.
Even in tragedy.
Opportunities are around us everywhere we go.
But what I want you to realize is that there are opportunities right this second.
Right now, as you are reading this, there’s something you can do.
There’s someone you can call.
There’s something you can learn.
There’s a moment that can exist that will literally change the trajectory of your entire life.
By the way those opportunities and moments don’t have to be significant.
Often times it’s those tiny moments that wind up making the biggest difference.
And when you combine all those small moments over time, you will have achieved a lifetime of excellence.
Or rather, you can.
The choice is yours.
So pick up the phone.
Make the call.
Do the good deed that goes unnoticed.
Dance when no one is watching.
Take the leap literally and figuratively.
You might as well, because you’re not even supposed to be here.
