Opportunity is all around you, an email received from Christine Comaford
Hi there An,
it’s Christine Comaford with your weekly Mighty Minute. While you build your career and shape your life, start envisioning your dream…building it until it’s real and vivid and something you can depend on when the going gets rough. Sometimes we fall short of what we expect of ourselves. But as long as you keep moving, you’ll make it.Did you know that Mother Teresa was a great social entrepreneur?
In a poem called “Do It Anyway”, Mother Teresa said:
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, some could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
When you’ve got that dream where you want it, start laying out the steps that will get you there. Goal-setting is a powerful tool for this. Knowing where you’re going also helps keep your eye on the prize.Remember, An, there are opportunities all around you – all you need to do is take advantage of them. They may be opportunities to make money, and that may be what you need to do it right now. But there may also be opportunities to meet new people, to learn new things, to help relieve someone’s pain. In the end those are the things that you’ll put in the bank.
Until next time, may all your ventures be MIGHTY!
