This is a fact which we must believe because we have so many opportunities that we must not forgo. There are so many opportunities that sometimes come our way and how to make special use of them would be the way out or would be the problem.
When you see an opportunity, don't just ignore it but make good use of it to the fullest instead of looking just like someone who has not seen it before. Opportunity missed can not be regained and so finding ways to have what is good for you must be what you must be after.
I was told a story yesterday which happened to be real life. A guy who happened to remain poor finding ways to eat met luck. He has been begging from his friends and trying by all means to make ends meet. He found jobs from pillar to post but could not see any not until luck shone on him. He was so lucky as he traveled to Ghana trying to search for money and how he would be rich but all his efforts were to no avail.
After years of searching, a strange number called him which happened to be a lady from the US. She was supposed to call someone else but mistakenly missed the number and luckily called the guy in question. He received that call and the lady told him that it seemed this was not the number she was supposed to call. He told the lady that "we can be friends despite the fact that it wasn't my number you were supposed to call. This was how it all started and they kept on chatting. They chatted day and night which later made the lady pick up interest in the guy. She later fell for him and was sending him some tangible amount of money per week. She sent him money to rent a house and to furnish the house to her satisfaction.
This guy that was initially begging later became a big boy and was spending money lavishly. He was humanizing and going about renting hotels just in the name of enjoyment. Some of his friends who are wise told him to use this opportunity to arrange himself a business which he may fall back on in the long run, but my guy refused. He kept on enjoying as the money was truly coming.
The lady told him that they should get married but then he has to pay her a visit. He initially agreed and told the lady to send him some money to prepare his paper. She did not hesitate, instead sending him a tangible amount of money. He prepared his paper and left for Dubai instead of going to the US. He called the lady that he is stocked in Dubai, which the lady understood. She did not waste any time, instead sending him some money to leave Dubai. The idiot could not leave and instead came back home. After four days, the lady called and said that she would come to pay him a visit since he failed to come to meet up with her. She sent some tangible amount of money yet again to this guy.
His mother advised him to open a business, but she became her enemy. Everyone who advised him to arrange himself instead of wasting the money somehow becomes his enemy. So, they allow him and let him be since he can take decisions all by himself. He thought the music would continue until eternity not knowing that he had made a great mistake which would make his end become regrettable.
He told the lady that she should still be good on for some months before they both arranged for marriage. That was the last time she called. She did not call and did not send any money. That contract became a dismissed one.
He is now suffering begging from one friend to the other. He is now regretting for not packaging himself by opening a business for himself before now.
When opportunity comes, never let it just go but make good use of it to your satisfaction because it cannot stay forever. Opportunity can only come and leave.
