Taking the Opportunity

They said, “Opportunity knocks only once.” In my case, it had knocked many times before but I kept mum about opening the door. I am either scared or I just don’t have faith as big as a mountain. Either way, I have let many opportunities pass only to regret later in my life.

There are opportunities that I have gladly accepted but I stirred my boat wrongly. I didn’t give much thought about them and was half-heartedly committing only because they became more of an obligation than something I could enjoy with.

I even prayed for opportunities to come my way. I answered some but then again, I was not putting my effort. I was rushing. I was impatient. I wanted to see results right away.

This time, the opportunity came when I least expected it. My friend actually approached me to review the products she is offering because I am a blogger and I do product reviews as well. So I said yes. Then I asked questions about the products, she gave me information about them and next thing I know it, I am a part of her team. Yes. It was a lengthy conversation about beauty and skin care products that got me hooked and I am glad that I did.

The thing is, I am a very skeptical person. I am very analytical, and I must understand every detail of something before I can put my personal stamp on it. In this case, I have heard of the brand before. I was still young when I heard of it. And because then, the brand seemed so elusive and exclusive, I didn’t give much thought about it. Until I became a part of the same brand I tried avoiding. Again, I am glad I signed up. I am still learning the ropes because I am just 3 weeks old in the company but I know one day, I can become a leader here. I would love that!

You see, opportunities like this one comes rarely in your lifetime. You either let it pass or you grab it by the horns. I have let this pass before and it came back to me unexpectedly. I did pray for God’s guidance and providence to lead me to a good opportunity where I can see myself, my family, my friends, and my new found teammates grow. And if there’s one thing I have learned about this whole process is to take the opportunities that come your ways as blessings. Not everyone has been given that honor to respond to a calling, no matter what that is.

It’s too early to say what will happen. I am just being very hopeful and positive. I feel I deserve this break after what I have been through. I am also praying that I will continue to enjoy this new endeavor for a long, long time.

Thanks to Nu Skin for giving me something to hope for. I pray that all my dreams will come true with your help.

The road to success is still long, and far. But I know someday, I will surely get there.

    That’s why when i have the opportunity with something that i applied, i always go for it, i don’t expect too much because i would rather be surprised of the outcome than being disappointed in the end.

    I think it’s always scary when you are trying to take a risk but who knows, right. This might turn out to be your calling. I’m glad you found something you love to do and a product you believe in.
