“Be hospitable to Opportunity. When he knocks, ask him to come in. Never turn him away. May be he brings a message from Heaven. ” (Romilia quotes)

Other fish to fry (Be inspired today 133 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Has something happened to you?
I see it has;
And I see you look sad about it;
You shouldn't;
What has happened
Maybe an extraordinary opportunity;
You seize it and be happy;
Opportunity often dresses shabbily;
And so many don't recognize it
Because of its tattered clothes;
Every misfortune is good fortune on the way;
Every setback can pave the way
For good luck to follow;
So the challenge staring at you
Is a great blessing in disguise.
If your fish burns in the pot,
You have other fish to fry;
If a relationship goes sour,
There are plenty of fish in the sea.

Your day will come

Your day will come;
Yes, your turn will come;
If others are having it
And you are not having it,
Don’t worry,
Your day will come;
Your turn will come;
To everyone their day;
To everyone, their turn;
Don’t you worry,
Your day will come;
Don’t be sad,
Your turn will come.
Be patient;
Give time a chance
To do its work.
To everyone, their day;
To everyone, their turn.
Your day will come;
Your chance will come.

People with disabilities feel hurt

People with disabilities
Want you to know
They are not people
With inabilities;
Be they physically
Visually impaired,
Or hard of hearing,
They get hurt
When you treat them
As subhuman beings;
People with disabilities
Hate to be pitied;
They say its not pity they need;
It’s your understanding;
And being aware of their needs;
And creating an enabling environment for them
To realize their potentials;
People with disabilities
Hate being talked to
Or treated like little kids
Where as they are grown up;
They are full fledged adults.
They frown at the condescending attitude
Of some people
Who try to sound so superior.
There are things you should never do to a blind person.
Many people with disabilities are excelling in many and areas in life.

Not tomorrow, now

If you are still young,

A great opportunity
Lies in your palms;
You have two options
Open to you:
Exploit the opportunity,
Or waste it;
One option
Will make you happy
And proud
All your life;
The other option
Will make you
The opportunity
In your hands is
To take a decision
To become somebody
To reckon with;
And to do
What you can
For this dream
To come true.
Will you exploit
Or waste
This opportunity?
It is a
Golden opportunity.
I want you to be
Happy tomorrow
Not sad;
I want you to be
Successful and proud.
Take the right decision
Not tomorrow, now;
To become exactly who
You were created to be.

Does opportunity come but once?

Featured Image -- 201217It is usually said that opportunity comes but once. How true is this? Does opportunity come but once?

I do not agree that opportunity comes but once. I do agree, there are some opportunities that will only come once and if you fail to take hold of them, they will vanish and never come again. But there are others that will come and come again. They will knock your door again and again.

The adage which says opportunity comes but once is really meant to encourage people to exploit the opportunities that come their way; to take action instead of only daydreaming about what they want to achieve or become.

It is important to be vigilant and seize any opportunity that comes your way in case it is the one that comes but once.

An opportunity means nothing if it is not exploited. Every opportunity is raw material for a blessing or blessings. It has to be exploited and refined like oil that is exploited and refined to become fuel; or gold that is exploited and refined. While unrefined it looks like waste material; but it is not waste material. It is still precious material but needs to be worked on.

Opportunities are building blocks of success. Every opportunity that is well exploited takes you higher on the ladder of success.

God has a way of dropping opportunities on your path. Sometimes they are very visible and easy to know. Many times also, they are in disguise. They disguise and look like the exact opposite of what they really are.

Many of the problems, obstacles, difficulties misfortunes, failures that come your way are opportunities in disguise. You have to look deep and long to find them buried, sometimes right at the center.

To enhance your chances of success, or becoming the person you are meant to be, always see every challenge, failure, obstacle disappointment etc, as an opportunity in disguise.

Your stumbling blocks are disguised opportunities waiting to be unveiled. When you unveil them, you will see that they were really stepping stones in disguise.

Today, many opportunities will come your way. If your eyes are not open, you will not see them. You will take them for misfortune, obstacles, failure, disappointment, etc. They are not. They are wonderful opportunities put on your path by your creator. They are an answer to your prayers. Do not let them slip through your fingers.

Always have in mind that though not all opportunities come but once, some opportunities come but once. Hence, seize every opportunity that comes your way before it has a chance to disappear and never return if it is that opportunity that comes but once.
