We can often make decisions to set us up for an opportunity we hope to have, with no guarantee that it will come to fruition.
There are many opportunities in the world that were once restricted such thay we had to be chosen (to publish a book or direct a movie). Now we don’t have to wait. We can choose ourselves and put something out in the world.
But many opportunities still require someone to choose you (elective office, police officer, judge).
If your dream requires that you get picked someday, what sacrifices will you make for the best chance of being chosen someday? It may be worth it! Just imagine what that day will feel like, when you are chosen. But if the day doesn’t come, will that be okay too?
