There’s a Lake called Opportunity.

Everyone walks past it, but people respond to it differently.

Some notice the crystal clear water and can’t wait to jump in.  They have a long swim and enjoy everything that the lake has to offer.

Some look at the water, take their shoes off, roll up their trousers and dip their feet in.  They like the lake, but don’t get past the edge of the shore.

Some see the water and look at those who are enjoying the lake with a mixture of emotions.  They are jealous of the swimmers, and at the same time, they are critical of those who are taking the risks that they themselves are too afraid to take.

And then there are those who walk right past the lake, but don’t notice the opportunity that’s right there beside them.

The Lake of Opportunity is very real and you walk past it every day.

Will you swim in it?

Will you paddle?

Will you look with envy upon at those who are brave enough to enter it?

Or will you remain oblivious to all of the wonderful opportunities that life has to offer?
