Always Move in the Direction of Opportunity
One of my cycling industry buddies recently told me about a huge change their family was contemplating, and what my thoughts were on it. To me it sounded like one incredible adventure, but would require them to move and make a pretty big change to their accustomed lifestyle. The best advice I could give was a quote that someone once told me, and has stuck in my mind ever since……”Always Move in the Direction of Opportunity“.
Making decisions are a part of every day, but the choice to follow a real opportunity only comes up every so often. At first the opportunity sounds great and we’re ready to say yes…..but then reality and our thought pattern kicks in and makes us think about all that’s involved. The truth is that along with opportunity comes fear of change.
So what do we do the next time an opportunity comes knocking on our door? I’m not a researcher or statistics guys, but I’m pretty sure that you’ll always be further ahead by moving in the direction of the opportunity. Oh, and that reminds me of another cool quote that was once told to me.
“Even if you fall flat on your face, when you get up you’ll be further ahead then when you started“
Keep an eye out for opportunity today, and I hope you chose to move in that direction.
