In the fast paced World we live in people tend to expect instant gratification and lose sight and patience as they quickly move on not waiting on things that just take time. They don't realize what they coulld have had because they are running around chasing the next thing. Anything worth having takes patience and hard work. You will have to slow down to see any opportunity and take a moment to explore the possibilities that the opportunity may offer. If you don't stop long enough to see an opportunity then you will miss out on an opportunity that could possibly help you. Opportunities are never lost they are taken by someone else.
