There is no security on earth; there is only opportunity. – Douglas MacArthur
I’m sorry, but if you are looking for security, you are in the wrong place. Actually, if you are looking for security, you are looking for the wrong thing. There is no security here. We don’t know what is going to happen in the future. We don’t even know about tomorrow. Trying to find security is working against nature. When we put security first we become careful, afraid, holding back. When we get something, we hold on, we treasure it, but we are afraid of losing, so we become more selfish, because we are afraid and worried that’s all we’ll have. What happens is that we end up frustrated. The harder we try, the less secure we actually feel.
Instead, look for opportunities, look for options, enter open doors, go new ways. When you look for opportunities life takes on a new meaning. Life becomes exciting, thrilling, fun, and we become bold and brave, not careless, but open to adventure. We no longer hold on in fear, so we become generous, giving, sharing. We treasure what we have, but we want to give and share.
If you want a great life and a fantastic future, seek out opportunities and possibilities. Be bold. Follow your dreams. And in the end you’ll find that the best security is actually not holding on, but letting go, and living life to the full.
