Opportunity

There’s a lot of opportunity in life.  The challenge behind opportunity is how little it tends to be recognized.  Typically this is because standard and hard life counter-balances the gleam of hope to excess and adverse effect.  When presented with phenomenal opportunity, the comfort of complacency and the futility of hardship, an unfortunate reaction is the tendency to revel in misery for some.  Most accept a complacent route, allowing others to speak for them and choose their path.

A small few individuals seize opportunity.  While some traits appear common among these, the only one that truly is common is situational motivation.  It’s not intelligence, morality or zeal.  It’s how a person is set to be at a given moment.

With opportunity literally being an open door to further an end to a benefit, it’s a remission as a responsible and responsive person to not take advantage.  That does not exact a lack or need for moral compunction, however.  Pursuit of any opportunity should be undertaken and done so with intelligence, morality and zeal.

Without Moral Compromise

It’s easy to reach an ends when one chooses to abandon ethics in order to meet the result.  The true test and true showing of morality is achieving the ends without ever compromising your integrity.
