Opportunities are all around us depending on the view we have of life. As is our human nature, we are never satisfied with what we have or where we are. We are constantly in search of something ‘better’ that will suit our current positions. Whether it is about our jobs or studies, we find ourselves always on the move for one main reason; opportunity.
Little is known to us that we are the very bosses that we travel far and wide to look for. The big question in our minds is whether opportunities are available overseas or what are the advantages of living and working abroad? To be honest, we tend to deceive ourselves that grass is indeed greener on the other side. What we don’t keep in mind is that there are people who have worked hard enough to make sure that the grass stays green. We are no different from them and also have what it takes to change our own destiny.
Opportunities are all around us
Contrary to popular beliefs, opportunities are everywhere including where we are situated. All we have to do is change the mindset that we have been holding on to for so long. The sooner we do this is the sooner things will turn around in our favor. We can’t deny the fact that most of us have gotten some pretty good breaks overseas. Things don’t always work out the same way for all of us, some of us have gone an extra mile and blamed it on providence.
We have seen, heard of or come across people who saved every last penny they had just to travel abroad. The sad bit is that they came back in an even worse shape than they were before and couldn’t blame it on anyone else but themselves.
The point is, we have to open our eyes and smell the coffee. No one in this world has the power to chart our destiny but ourselves. We do this by welcoming anything that crosses our path instead of dismissing it like we are used to.
We are endowed with unique gifts
Whether you decide to look for opportunities overseas or try to find them at your current location, your unique gifts will bail you out. It is a proven fact that succeeding abroad is only in our minds. It is up to us to change this or we will find ourselves drowning in the sea of ignorance.
The few cases that we have heard of people prospering is simply because they refused to be tied down by circumstances. This line of thought can be likened to a type of cancer that is only out to drain us and eventually kill us. The worst part is that some of us leave our countries which are preciously endowed only to work under someone else’ supervision.
We should think of moving abroad as a final resort and not first. Exhausting all our resources is the only way that we are going to open our eyes and see that we are viable. It is not easy to have it all completely exhausted, but we can cling to our wisdom and see that what we have left is replenished for future use.
