Your “Nevers” Are Your Opportunities

The “nevers” became my opportunities once I chose to consider them.

Why do we say “never” first?

  • Youth and inexperience
  • Lack of confidence
  • Easy is easier
  • No guidance
  • Fear is paralyzing

My “nevers” included:

  • Never – going to use my accounting degree
  • Never – going to be a CPA
  • Never – going to be the employer, content with being an employee
  • Never – going to merge

My “never” became “Maybe, OK, Probably” and finally “Yes” due to influencers and facing my challenges.

What are your challenges?

  • Do you value who you are – no one will ever value you as much as YOU
  • Are you leveraging your uniqueness?
  • Are you paralyzed by fear?
  • When and how you do say NO – that is not a never!

“Nevers” just may be your opportunities.  Be more aware of the people in your life. Ask more questions versus acceptance.  No one will value you more than you. Paralyzed by fear, you will miss your moment.  Leverage your uniqueness, it is your journey.
