Today I would like to write a little bit about opportunities. I sometimes feel that opportunities are underestimated and looked over. This is obviously not helping when it comes to working towards your goals and dreams.
When you start manifesting and using the law of attraction, you will need to be able to recognize opportunities.
But how do you recognize them?
I made the following experience and thought this worked pretty well.
First we have to differentiate between two main factors:
- Having a goal set
- Having no goal set but having a vague idea in your head
The first one is way easier so I would highly recommend to get clear about your intention and future goal/dream. Go into as much detail as possible and make sure you can feel it. Imagine how it would feel like. Don’t get caught up in the “HOW”. We will never know HOW it will happen. This means you have to surrender and believe. (God, Universe, higher self….you name it).
Once you are clear about your goal/dream, you will start to notice things, comments and all sorts of things that you would normally not recognize but now you do. Many people also consider this as signs from the universe.
For example: if you have a certain object in mind (i.e car) that you want to manifest, you suddenly start to see the car-brand/model everywhere.
Or is it a country because you want to move there? How about suddenly seeing flags in relation to it or start hearing about someone who is from that country?
Or is it the new dream-partner you are manifesting? Can you suddenly see all the happy couples around you or notice that there is an advertisement for a single-meet up nearby? (also an opportunity!)
This is when opportunities start to happen! Some of those signs are simply opportunities. Very often we dismiss them because we are lazy or have some kind of excuse. Push out of your comfort zone and go for it.
Let’s say you have the following in mind:
You want a new, better job. (The definition of that job is up to you).
Suddenly you get a new message on LinkedIn about an job offer. Or you talk to a friend and that friend happens to mention a new job opening in their company without realizing you were looking for a new job.
We could easily dismiss that opportunity because you might have a specific job in mind and that wouldn’t suit you. However, are you fully sure? There is an opportunity! So before dismissing it, I highly recommend to look into it and think it over. Is it suitable? Could it lead to the next step?
Often we forget that many babysteps are needed in order to actually reach the big goal.
So are you after dismissing that babystep?
This also ties into the 2nd main factor when you only have a vague idea about your future goal/dream. It is mindfulness and awareness.
I would like to point out that practicing mindfulness and awareness has A LOT of benefits in every aspect of your life.
In this particular post and 2nd factor, it will help big time because:
If you are not fully sure about your future goal/dream, you will be still able to recognize any kind of opportunity in regards of it, because you are mindful and aware.
This means living your life in an aware state of mind. Seeing smelling/experiencing/feeling things , recognizing them, evaluating them and considering how to process the information.
By being very mindful and aware throughout your day, you will not miss a possible opportunity that will serve you reaching your goal. This can be so random and appears to be senseless, however it feels so right and good to do, so by trusting your gut and going for it (surrendering and believing) you will soon harvest the fruits of your planted seeds (in your mind/life/etc.).
I highly recommend to consciously start thinking about opportunities. To realize that they can come in every form and shape. It is essential no not judge and be open minded.
I hope this makes sense to you, my dear reader, and if you require any more information in regards of it, feel free to leave a comment below and I shall answer you J
