We all have dreams and desires we want to accomplish. To be a singer or an actor, to open up a business, to work in your dream job, to buy a house or just simply to be someone successful. However, most of us are just waiting for that day to come rather than trying to make that day a reality. We may be in a job we hate for many months and yet wishes a new job offer is coming without trying to find one. You may say it is not the right time, not the right moment or you are just not ready.
From the words of George Bernard Shaw, ‘Don’t wait for opportunity, Create it.’ There is no perfect time and moment, we got to create them. If we want to open up a business but we have no experience and financial support, we just can’t afford to just wait till the money comes. If business is your dream, we can start to study and learn about business, meet new people to ask for their guidance, to take the initiative to go to seminars and workshops, slowly that opportunity will come for you to open your dream business. It is the same way for any other dream you have. You don’t have to start when you have the money, the influence or the right time, as from the words of Arthur Ashe, ‘Start where you are, Use what you have and Do what you can.
It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one, than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.Whitney M. Young
All these things we are doing so that when the right opportunity comes, we know we are ready for it. The problem is many people tend to wait and eventually never got to live their dream. A few friends of mine have been complaining about their jobs for many months but never took the time to find a better one that suits them. When the time come where they try looking, they have already been in the job they hate for years. However, know this, it is not worth it living your life in misery. Sometimes, we got to create and design our future, to prepare and craft our path and there is no better time than to start right now. Hence, Don’t wait for your time because now, it is your time!
