Can You Create Opportunity?

Can opportunity be created or must you wait for it to find you? What can you do today to create opportunities?

Can You Create Opportunity?

In the first part of this short series on opportunity, we talked about what opportunity really is. Discussed was how opportunity is a conscious choice given a set of circumstances. Opportunities can take many forms. They can be positive, improving your situation and giving you greater energy. However, opportunities can be negative, robbing you of time or detracting from the quality of your life.

Opportunity looks exactly how you imagine it.

One key to understanding opportunity that was discussed was the ability to imagine it clearly. Some people call this manifestation. This idea, that you can clearly imagine the impacts of your decisions and choices is important in many aspects of your life. I think a study into manifestation would be very appropriate for my next series, so stay tuned!

The question I posed to start this article was a simple one: Can you create opportunity?

Frankly, the answer to this question is simple. Yes. One can create opportunities. Every single day, you have the ability to create opportunities in your life that, in most cases will benefit you and raise your energy. The problem with such an easy answer to this question is that yet another question is raised.

HOW can you create opportunities?

This answer is not so simple. We as humans ask this question of so many topics in our lives. We often know that we can do something, but we have no idea how. In my mind, this is a fundamental question which should press on the mind of every individual who sets out to complete a task or learn something new for the first time.

Alas, I will not be able to give you a formula to solve every "how" question you ask yourself each day. I can, and will, tell you how you can create more opportunities in your life.

The main thing you absolutely must do to generate more opportunities is to THINK BIGGER.

Almost every opportunity is a chance for you to think bigger. If it is an opportunity that will end up benefiting you, it only makes sense to think bigger. With a broader perspective and a belief that things can and will get bigger and better, more conscious choices present themselves as opportunities. If you cage your mind into thinking that you will never have a big opportunity, a big opportunity will never present itself to you!

This is just the way life works. In the last article, I talked about energy. If you raise your energy by thinking bigger, bigger and better things will come your way. Once you decide to think bigger, you will see that there are endless opportunities disguised as everyday choices. The main thing is that these disguises are self-imposed. I promise that once you rid your choices of these disguises, your eyes will be opened to a brilliant world of opportunities which had been right in front of you all along.

Opportunities are out there, ripe for the picking.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
