I am a firm believer that things work out only when we are ready for them. An opportunity comes and if you don’t have the right experience, or the right education, or if you are not in a place in your life when you can take advantage of it; Or if you are not willing to take the risk— then it will pass you by.
I am sure it sucks when you let an opportunity pass by and only later you realize that you should have readied yourself for it. Because there are some opportunities that do really only come once in a lifetime.
I think I have taken every good opportunity given to me, and I’ve made the best of it, and have very little regrets about that. So if it hasn’t worked out, I am at least happy I tried. And if they haven’t worked out, it’s because as good as it was, it wasn’t right.
The right one is still out there, waiting to be taken advantage of. In a good way of course.
