MM&I Header

February 4, 2013 -  Do you welcome opportunities into your life? Are you effectively inviting opportunities in? You may be having difficulty realizing success and satisfaction in your life because you are not fully able to identify or be receptive to opportunities being placed right in front of you. Rather than dismissing things at surface level, be open to exploring a bit more and determining its real value to you. Be willing to share things with others in order to spark opportunities that only others may be able to see and bring to you.

Take an MM&I Moment to consider how open you truly are to identifying and exploring opportunities.  Are you open to options that could help you with something you are trying to achieve? Are you open to other people's ideas? Do you take a moment to stop and consider the possibilities when something is presented to you?  Do you dismiss unusual coincidences or see them as signs worth investigating further?  Do you share what you are trying to do with others so they can offer their perspectives or potentially connect you to a resource? What you believe and do has a direct impact on what is truly possible in your life. When you start thinking about possibilities, you will be amazed at the opportunities that begin to surface and flourish around you.
