21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity


Perceived failure in the past can leave us feeling that we’ve blown our chances. That somehow we’re destined for nothing more than a series of unexceptional and relatively low paid jobs.

For instance, this feeling would be typical of someone leaving the education system having little or nothing to show for their years in the classroom in terms of certificates and diplomas.

However always remember this; your future is not defined by your past.

Mistakes made can be always rectified.

A perceived failure is not the end of the world, it’s just an outcome you didn’t want. You can have as many chances to try again as you’re prepared to take.

Never forget, the future is an endless stream of opportunities.

You can choose to take them, or not, it’s down to you and you alone. You can make your life whatever you want it to be, as long as you’re prepared to make changes and work hard.

So focus on what you want and with determination and hard work it really can be yours.

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity. Reflect on them all dear reader and then think about your life and whether it’s all you’d like it to be.
