My Father Said: Fall In Love With Oppourtunity
Nate here. Just a thought…Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be motivated to achievement by such a lofty goal as benevolence (For those of you who are wondering what it means the definition is 1 disposition to do good, 2 a : an act of kindness or b : a generous gift).
Someone once said you have to love what you do, but that’s not necessarily true. What is true is what my Father said: “Nate, you have to fall in love with opportunity.”
The opportunity to build life, future, health, success and fortune. Knocking on someone’s door or making that extra call may not be something you love to do, but you love the opportunity of what might be behind that door or call.
You can be inspired by having found something; even though you are making mistakes in the beginning and it is a little distasteful taking on a new discipline that you haven’t learned before. You don’t have to love it, you just have to learn to appreciate where you live, appreciate opportunity and appreciate the person who brought you the good news; that found you.
Appreciate the person who believed in you before you believed in yourself, appreciate the person who said, “Hey, if I can do it, you can do it.”
If you will embrace the disciplines associated with the new opportunity you will soon find that your self-confidence starts to grow, that you go from being a skeptic to being a believer. And soon when you go out person to person, talking to people, you will find it to be the most thrilling opportunity in the world. Every person you meet— what could it be? Unlimited!
So, before you are tempted to give up or get discouraged, remember all success is based on long term commitment, faith, discipline, attitude and a few stepping stones along the way. You might not like the stone you are on right now, but it’s sure to be one of the stones that lead to great opportunities in the future.
