Opportunities keep coming my way.

Wonderful possibilities surround me. I take risks and seek out opportunities. I spot the potential benefits that lie within my hardships and struggles.

I turn losses into gains. If I lose my job, I can find a more satisfying position. If my heart is broken, I can develop a healthier relationship with a new partner. I know that each ending is also a beginning.

I create my own opportunities. I am willing to work for what I want. I invest my time, talents, and effort into turning any circumstances to my advantage.

I expand my mind. I read books and talk with others from different backgrounds. I ask questions and try to understand unfamiliar viewpoints.

I strengthen my body. I go to the gym or workout at home. I sample different fruits and vegetables at the local farmer’s market or food co-op.

I connect with others. I spend time with my loved ones and reach out to make new friends. I strike up conversations with strangers at the airport and join in discussions online.

I advance my career. I sign up for additional training at work and ask someone to mentor me in areas where I want to grow. I join committees to study employee benefits or conserve energy.

I gain insights through meditation and prayer. I find a spiritual community where I feel supported, and go on retreats that give me time for reflection.

Today, I focus on possibilities. I recognize the opportunities that lie before me.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What is the relationship between change and opportunity?
  2. How does helping others multiply my opportunities?
  3. What am I doing to prepare myself to take advantage of my next opportunity?
