Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

So many times we are presented with opportunities that we do not see or that we do not acknowledge. Sometimes that opportunity does not come packaged the way that we want it to. Sometimes we are busy looking at something else and completely miss the opportunity altogether.

Then we are left with the “shoulda, coulda, woulda”.

But when you’ve missed out on the opportunity, what good is it to wonder what would have happened, what could have happened, and what should have happened? It will only plague you and then, guess what, there will be another opportunity lost.

So how do we live in the present and not live a life of missed opportunities?

  • Focus
  • Have faith
  • Take the risk
  • Do the work

Sound way too simple? Maybe. But the truth is, it should be that simple. Stay focused on your goals and intentions. If you keep those at the forefront of your mind, you won’t forget what you should be focused on. Have faith. See what you desire and know that it can be yours. Take the risk. Opportunities present themselves but you have to be willing to try. Do the work. You can’t think that chances come your way and there will be no work involved. You have to do the work.

The fact is, if you should have, you could have, and you would have, you didn’t. So make sure you do.

Live. Love. Be.
