Thousands saw the apple fall, only one person asked why.
A lot of people lament the lack of opportunities in their lives. They jump form one job to another or from one project to another or stay stuck in the same place forever. Every time you ask them, why haven’t you moved forward, there’s a legion of reasons coming forth. Most of them blaming the ones who did move forward.
But the fact of life is, opportunities are like pieces of raw diamond. They are of no use to you unless, a) you recognize their value b) you make an attempt to uncover it.
So, stop sitting around waiting for things to happen to you. The cards you hold in your hand are enough to win the game. You just need to have either the skill or the confidence to bluff your way through.
