Use it or lose it

Even after I found out that my beautiful Birch Bolete was in fact an edible mushroom I was reticent to stick a fork in it. Next time it won't go to waste.


Opportunities are like that. If due to fear of failure (or poisoning) you don't seize them, then they pass on by. Or in the case of the mushroom they rot right there.

Not to worry. The stream of opportunities is constant. Learn the lesson. Reach out and take the one that is floating by right now. Just make sure it isn't poison.
