I’ve always been a believer in filling life with experiences and seizing opportunities. Often, best experiences come from where an opportunity could easily have been missed.
Take for example my honeymoon in Canada 2013. It was around the time of the Calgary floods that devastated large areas of the city. Many attractions and businesses had closed at this time, but it did not prevent my wife and I taking the C-train to Calgary Zoo.
It was closed.
As this was not on our “must-do” list, the simple thing would have been to hop back on the next C-train back to the city to spend our day doing something else.
And since when did I choose the simple thing anyway? I am an ‘outside the box’ thinker – and I had noticed there was a member of staff inside the closed zoo.
What was the harm in having a little chat before we hopped back on the train?
Nothing in fact. Because what happened next became the highlight of our trip.
My wife and I were invited to “visit” the closed zoo… and trust me, there is something really special in walking around a zoo with no one else around seeing animals just “being”.
Jo, my wife, loves king emperor penguins but had never seen them before. We would never have imagined that for her first encounter, she would be able to watch them in their enclosure as a private audience guest. We are so grateful to Calgary Zoo for a memory that will last a lifetime!
Magical moments don’t happen every day… but they do happen.
It’s all in the mindset.
Do you just let opportunities pass you by or do you seize each chance to make life memorable beyond many people’s wildest imagination?
As a coach, I help people create the life of their dreams – by working on mindset, you will not only spot incredible opportunities, but you will have the belief to understand that almost anything is possible.
There is an opportunity right here… do you want to change your life?
Grab the chance.
I only work with 6 clients in any given month.
Are you one of them – or will you let the opportunity pass?
