Tycoonism “The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.”

August 28, 2009

On yesterday’s Tycoonism, I said that sometimes opportunity approaches, or it passes us by swiftly and leaves us nothing by which to detain it.And every experience in life is indeed an opportunity.

The key is to be able to recognize opportunities and not let it pass. Most of the times, temptation is on your face and lures you back to bad habits and bad situations. Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we notice too late the one that is open. Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.

Success and failure is a two-sided coin. How it lands once you have thrown it up depends solely on how you look at it. What you must shift is your focus from the negative to the positive side of the coin. The fact is if you don’t shift your perspective, you have failed from the beginning. You have failed before you have even started…you have talked yourself out of it.

Experiencing failure is necessary in this world. What makes it valuable is if you learn from your mistakes and use this failure to turn yourself around. You can always fail and yet you can always try again. There is always hope in this world. Anything good deed will always reap you good fate and good optimism.
