“I remember once when I was young, and I was coming back from some place, a movie or something. 
I was on the bus and there was a girl sitting across from me, she was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. 
And I was very shy then, so when she would look at me I would look away, then afterwards when I would look back she would look away. 
Then I got to where I was gonna get off, and got off, the doors closed, and as the bus was pulling away she looked right at me and gave me the most incredible smile. It was awful, I wanted to tear the doors open. 
And I went back every night, same time, for two weeks, but she never showed up. 
That was 20 years ago and I don't think that theres a day that goes by that I don't think about the many missing opportunities, because they happened over and over again, somehow I don't learn.
What is a missed opportunity?
A missed opportunity is a chance you have not taken because of fear. It's most often fear that is holding us back from progressing.
Now, you can apply this to anything in your life, from the business you want to build to the cheap car you didn't buy last weekend. But the missed opportunity I am referring to, is not living the life you want to.
For example, when you met someone who could have a great impact on your life, and you didn't take the chance because fear was holding you back.
