gospelBy Early Jackson

Growing up my mom made it her life’s mission to make sure her children were not only raised in a home filled with integrity, but also had a connection to church. Most Sundays our family would be front and center on a pew in our neighborhood church. Singing, clapping and building friendships was an integral part of my childhood. And so was hearing about the “Gospel.”

Between Bible camp and Sunday services, I became proficient in understanding the concept of the four Gospels in the Bible as well as what they meant for mankind. One of my Bible camp teachers summed up the Gospel as simply, good news. How awesome is that? No fancy words I couldn’t comprehend, just good news. As I grew older I quickly learned this definition has multiple implications on our lives whether we are religious or not.

Understanding that Gospel is good news, let’s check out how this concept connects to opportunities. First, in Latin, opportunity is “Opportunus” and gives a completely different view than English. It is seen in an aggressive light, not passive and means to open or release through effort. Also it is to pry or prop open. So our perception of an opportunity showing up is flawed and a huge reason why we do not seize them many times. Let me share 3 myths about opportunities:

Myth 1: Just wait, your time and opportunity will show up eventually~ This one lie has kept more creative and innovative people from ever tasting success. Absolutely a myth! Good things don’t come to those who wait, they come to those who get off their butts and hustle for it. When you get to the point you’re just sitting around you are taking a passive stance toward life. Nothing good ever comes from that. Life requires constant engagement at a high level to be successful.

Myth 2: When it comes, things will just fall in line~ Another fantasy we all wish were real. But not so. Usually opportunities show up disguised as hard work. That’s why most miss them. I tell clients in my coaching practice that a good indicator of an opportunity is it stretches and challenges you beyond your comfort zone. You feel at your breaking point, and just on the other side of that is your break through.
