You know when people say, “when you are given an opportunity, take it”? Ya.. YOU SHOULD. My bucket list is getting more and more full of cross-outs with this attitude and I couldn’t be happier.
When you come across an opportunity that even somewhat interest you, take it. When you see an application for a job you want, when you walk by an old friend and wonder if you should make the effort to catch up with them, when someone is clearly in need of assistance, or when your profs hold office hours… GO.
If you have the opportunity to do something you’ve always wanted to, why wouldn’t you do it? Don’t let fear take over your life, that’s ridiculous.
Not only will feel great after, and avoid the treacherous “what if” if you don’t proceed, but you owe it to yourself and the world you live in to take these opportunities.
We don’t have destinies and things don’t come into your lives for a reason, but why not live the most purposeful and extraordinary life you can? It doesn’t take that much effort. You don’t have to fly to Uganda, or spend your Sunday afternoon planting trees and picking up garbage (although that would be kind of you). All you have to do is act upon what’s in front of you.
You’ll be surprised who you meet and what you accomplish with this mindset.
