21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity

QUOTES ABOUT OPPORTUNITYQuotes about opportunity can be inspiring in my experience. They’re always positive which I like.

A past littered with perceived failures can often leave us feeling that we’ve blown our chances of success in life.

We can often feel that somehow we’re destined for nothing more than a series of unexceptional jobs with modest remuneration because we didn’t do well in school or we didn’t make much effort in our early years, or whatever.

I know this feeling is common among people who left the education system with little in the way of certificates and diplomas to show for all their years in the classroom.

However, certificates and diplomas are just pieces of paper. They’re nice to have but they don’t, in any way, define you.

Above all, you must always remember this dear reader; 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, that 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 with determination and hard work and success really can be yours, regardless of any mistakes you may have made in the past. The past was a series of lessons, not a life sentence.

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity.

Reflect on all these quotes dear reader and then think about your life and whether it’s all you’d like it to be. If it isn’t all you’d like it to be, then it’s time to make some changes and go boldly in search of a better life experience.
