Your Best Opportunities Come At The Most Inconvenient Times #Riseup

In this four part series, we are moving people past resolutions they make at the beginning of the year – they research shows they break within days of making them – and encouraging them instead to RiseUp in different aspects of their lives, in their communities and in the world. Here is part 3. We take a look at the opportunities that people tend to turn down and the reasons why (myths).

Opportunities never come wrapped up in a bow.


They never come at the best times in your life.

This is why most people pass them up.

Your BEST opportunities are attracted to and/or drawn towards key words such as:

I’m busy.

I have too much on my plate right now.

I have alot going on right now.

The truth of the matter is that people settle for their first or second choices rather than the BEST choice. The reason they do this is because the BEST choice ALWAYS comes at the worst time. It also forces us outside of our comfort level – which actually is the key to growth. People become so comfortable with what they are doing already, any new opportunity seems like extra work.

But in order to get something you never had, you have to do something you have never done before.

Everyone has a gift (talent). Your gift will always make room for you. You actually can NEVER have too much on your plate because opportunities will push non essential things off the plate.

So this year. Don’t pass up your BEST opportunities because you have “too much on your plate”. Rise Up and remember that your BEST opportunities come at the most inconvenient times in your life.
