Do You See Abundance?

I Prosper Wherever I Turn~I now see opportunities for abundance everywhere. I am blessed and prospered. ~Louise L. Hay

I am blessed with being able to see the opportunities ahead of me. I usually have four or five prospective projects in mind at any given time. I think it’s because I’m so focused on those positive opportunities that I rarely have time to dwell on the negative things that pop into my life. It is true that opportunities do abound if you are on the lookout for them.

This is not a skill I came to naturally. I had to learn to be open to it. It’s easy to dwell on the negative in life or to pass the blame   someone else for the life we led. It’s easy to forget that WE are the ones that lead our life there. Blaming others and the I can’ts are easy outs. We can wallow in fear because we don’t want to see the opportunities that are there. If we saw them, then we would have to take responsibility for not acting on them.

It takes great courage to not only see those opportunities but to pursue them. To pursue them requires risk and taking chances, there’s no stable foundation when you go after an opportunity. It’s an unknown, it could work or it could fail. It’s so much easier to not try. Better the fear you know than the fear you don’t. I can understand that mentality. I just don’t “get” it. Because, what if it does work; isn’t that worth the risk?

That last bit is what gets me hooked every time. What if it does work? Just stop and think about that for a moment. What if you had the chance to pursue one of those opportunities that you’re afraid to take on right now? I’m sure some will say that they can’t pursue those things because they have a lot to lose, okay, again I understand that. But what about what you have to WIN? And people DO win; simple ordinary people win every day and do extraordinary things. I want to BE one of those people. I don’t want to just exist, I want to LIVE and I want to be EXTRAORDINARY!
