I have a friend that says that we all have just three opportunities in life, and we have to be aware, to be able to make good use of them. He claims he already lost two, and he’s waiting for his last one.
I refuse to believe that our destiny is not in our hands. As the Boss ad says, the day is what we make of it. I think there are a lot of opportunities every time, is just the way we look at things and situations what enable us to discover them.
There are situations in life that make us change completely the way we think as an accident, an experience or religion among others. I have another friend in the middle of this process, and although might be terrible to feel clueless for some time, as soon as new priorities and objectives begin to appear in the shadows, a myriad of new opportunities come to light. Is just our decision to maintain this optimistic and motivated view.
