Keys of Opportunity Minute
A Twilight Zone voice of Rod Sterling makes it more fun at the start.
Imagine, if you will, a man walking down a long hallway.
On the floor lay keys, different shapes and sizes. As the man walks, he stops to pick up some keys and leaves others. Only he knows why he chooses which to take and which to leave - maybe he's too lazy to retrieve them all, maybe he is in too much of a hurry, possibly a key does not look interesting to him.
At the end of the hall, the man reaches a large cicular room. There are many doors all around the room. Some doors are very interesting looking while others are simple wooden doors. Each door has a keyhole. The man chooses the door that appeals to him most. Unfortunately, as he tries the keys he collected, none fit the door. He left that key laying in the hall.
The hallway is your life. The doors are goals or rewards. The keys are opportunities to grow. If you do not grab the opportunities as you travel through life, you will not be able to unlock the door to your rewards and you will have to settle for something less.
