Think about it. When we are so focused on achieving our goals, we often miss big, life-changing opportunities. Yes, opportunity knocks often, sometimes softly. And more often than not, sometimes loudly. Opportunity could be screaming and yelling at us, and yet we ignore it. People who live goal-free are constantly watching for new opportunities that present themselves in unexpected ways. With open minds—and open eyes—they’re able to identify opportunities anywhere, even in unlikely places, and anytime, even in tragedy. They keep their minds clear of clutter to allow subtle messages to appear, because on the road of life you need to be on the lookout for hidden signposts.
