A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I saw an amazing movie, Evan Almighty. When we got to the theatre, I wasn't sure if I was going to like the movie or not. The previews were funny but I wasn't sure if I would like the movie as a whole. When the movie was over, I was smiling from ear to ear! The movie was great! I love movies that you can take lessons/things away from and this was definitely one of those movies.
The main thing that I took away from this movie was that when we ask for things...we don't always get what we ask for...instead sometimes, maybe, we get opportunities to exercise the things that we do ask for.
If you're spiritual/religious and you pray and ask God for courage or love or whatever...you might not "get" courage or love...instead you might get the opportunity to be courageous or to be loved/love someone.
And the same thing applies if you aren't religious or spiritual. We are always looking for new opportunities...opportunities to make more money, opportunities to make new friends, opportunities for everything! It's like that movie The Secret....you get exactly what you are thinking about. So if you are thinking about that new job or how to make more money or how to make new friends...that is exactly what you will get.
That's all great...but what I want to emphasize on is not letting those opportunities pass you by. See, a few months ago I prayed and asked God for him to give me courage in some areas of my life (business and personal). Now that I look back on that situation I see SO MANY opportunities I had to be courageous but I didn't take those opportunities because in my head I thought "it's not the right time, God is going to give me courage and when He does...I'll know" instead, He was giving me those opportunities and I let them pass me by!
So I want to encourage you to always keep your eyes and ears open for those opportunities that you are looking for. Like I said, it could be opportunity to make more money, make new friends or maybe you want to start a home based business or if you are involved with MLM, network marketing, pyramid scheme, direct sales, traditional business, online business, whatever you want to call it ;) Or if you are associated with any of these companies...
