A Few Thoughts on Opportunity

The Recovering Pessimist: A Few Thoughts on Opportunity -- People are watching you. Don't think that because they're watching you that means they have your best intentions in mind. Best believe at least one of them is waiting for you to slip up so they can slide in. Don't believe me? Just watch. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistThe recent Pokémon Go craze has folks doing the absolute most. So much so that here in RVA  a woman was robbed playing the game. As I rolled my eyes at the sheer stupidity of this craze, I started thinking about opportunity.

Ya’ll hear me up there in the nosebleed seats?!?!?!

Folks will wait in the wings, waiting for you to f*ck up so they can slide in and take advantage of your hard work. I have been on both sides of that coin. Is that wrong? Morally, yes. However, when it comes to opportunity, morals tend to take a back seat.

So what can you do?

Be aware of your surroundings. Understand that everyone that appears to be in your corner isn’t. I don’t want you to get caught up in some mess. And I damn sure don’t want you to go outside at 10 p.m. at night looking for some mess on an app.

Just don’t.

Because somebody is always watching you.

And they don’t have your best interest at heart.

Until next time,
