It’s true that I’ve had a lot of opportunities present themselves to me over the last couple of years and I’ve often turned my back on them. Many times the so called opportunities look like time wasters to me. Often they involve something that just isn’t what I want to do. A gut instinct just tells me to walk away.
A couple of times I’ve ignored my gut and taken the opportunity only to regret it later. I’m trying to learn to follow my gut and not just give in to what others see as opportunity.
And I think that’s the issue – what might be an opportunity that some would love to have just feels off to me. I feel sick my stomach.Â Paralyzed.
Sometimes when there is a fork in the road, instead of taking what seems to be the obvious path, I chose the other. It’s almost like an invisible barrier prevents me from taking the obvious path. Is that gut instinct? fate pushing me? or is it fear of failure? or of success?
What do you think? Is it ok to walk away from opportunity?
