But I don't dare to take risk in creating opportunities because my past experiences never allow me to do so.
Therefore, it is always desirable to wait with full preparedness and watch carefully for the opportunity so that we do not miss it when it knocks our door.
I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.
In 2006, our colony is almost filled. No empty plots to purchase. But I want to be in the same colony. So I am searching very seriously. Luckily I found a piece of land. But the land is almost 600 Sq.Yards. But my planning is to buy only 300 sq.yards. But the owner told that he will sell whole land as one piece only. I don't want to leave that piece. So I paid a small advance and made him to wait. Then I started searching for a party who will take 300 sq.yards from that. Finally I could trace one known person who is interested to take and I settled the issue. By thinking that I can't afford the whole land, if I have not progressed I might have missed the bus. There I converted an opportunity to my convenience and got the desired.
As an human being we can't wait for a chance to come, you have to convert the available opportunities to your convenience.
Looking for luck to work in my personal opinion is a sign of weakness. As we are depending on luck factor to work.
Instead work hard and venture out for the things that you love to do. Look out for maximum opportunities as the author as has mentioned.
In real life I also I am not a queue jumper. I would rather patiently wait for my turn to come. But I would keep myself equipped for the responsibilities so that I can take them up when assigned. In this regard, I can say for sure that, because of my non-aggressiveness and non-manipulative character I would have missed or got delayed certain things which I deserved and was normally due to me. But I have no regrets. I took them on a philosophical note. Hence I am happy and contented, and do not have any regrets. I take that whatever had happened was good to me.
