There is always opportunity around us.
It may not seem like it at times.
Or it may seem like there are too many opportunities.
Yet neither is really the case.
We are so focused on our own scarcity that we can't imagine a different way of doing something.
Such as when we get laid off and we feel there are no jobs for people with our skills.
Perhaps there are other kinds of jobs we can do.
Even when times are bad and the economy is depressed, there are still people who make money.
We just have to look at our situation with different eyes to see where the opportunity might lie.
For opportunity is only real opportunity if it truly aligns and resonates with us and what we are doing.
Otherwise it is a distraction.
That one intention many have many different arms, yet they will all be related in some way.
Not in a way that you have to contort your thinking to make them all align.
In a way that just comes naturally, organically, that anyone outside of you can see.
For opportunity is not really about making money.
Opportunity is about expressing ourselves through our work.
It is about bring our focus and our presence to a situation, and finding a way to be of service.
So if we do not see enough opportunity, perhaps we are not being truly present to the opportunities in front of us to be in service?
If we see too much opportunity in front of us, perhaps we are not being truly present to our intention of how we wish to bein service?
So how do you feel about opportunity?
Do you have too much, too little, or just the right amount?
