What is an opportunity? Yes, we know what the dictionary definition is (don’t we?).
Well, let’s refresh our memory. The dictionary says, “a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something“.
An opportunity is so much more than this simplified definition. It can be abstract or something very tangible. It depends.
I know I have passed up many opportunities in my life!
I know many people who have also passed up important chances.
I was able to attend a Dream Big Workshop over the weekend where all of the participants created a 2014 Vision Board for themselves.
I was excited to attend. There was also a panel discussion led by some incredible women who are doing their entrepreneurial thing.
The host was gracious enough to pass out laminated copies of the above picture to everyone in attendance. GREAT!
I sat through an all day class of Franklin Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People a few years back and needed to be reminded of the habits.
Attending the event was an opportunity within itself!
Some may have felt they could just make their own board at home. Those people would have missed out on a blessing of an opportunity.
I was able to:
- Hear great advise from women who have been through a few thangs (in business)
- Plan my new year
- Meet likeminded people
- Get fresh air, lol
In 2014, I will be paying more attention to opportunities and not letting them pass me by!
