Yes I do agree that life is hard especially when you consider the challenges that come with it. But people are focused on dwelling on the challenges until they fail to notice that life is full of opportunities. Only those who are hard-hearted make it in a tightly contested race for success. Life is full of participants who compete for the little resources available, so the scientific theory 'survival for the fittest '.
We live in harsh conditions and times where the winner takes it all, and to make matters worse the resources are few and we all want to make use of this scarce resource. Those who are able to identify that life is filled with opportunities and tap into these resources and utilize them economically will sure have the last laugh.
In life every opportunity is golden and should never be taken for granted. Individuals need to recognize these chances and utilize them to the fullest so that they can improve their lives. However, it is not everyone who is able to recognize the opportunities that life offers to them. Opportunities do not come in an explicit manner but rather are sometimes disguised in form of hardships.
This is true because in every disadvantage there is an advantage. One must identify the positive side of situations and concentrate on overcoming these obstacles rather than give up. This will be helpful in maintaining focus, confidence and optimism. It thus helps to play down the effects of the challenge in order to see clearly and take advantage of an opportunity presented in life.
Opportunities are not to be waited for but instead you need to go out there and look for them. Those who always wait for the ideal circumstances most of the time never realize that life is full of opportunities. They never grow or develop but waste their whole life wishing and procrastinating. They wait for a 'perfect' tomorrow which they fail to realize comes from hard work and determination. Go-getters take action and actually participate in every step that leads them to their goals.
Life is full of opportunities all you have to do is open your eyes.
