"If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss;"

- Rudyard Kipling

Throughout our lives, we are presented with a multitude of opportunities that are completely endless. Whether it is going to lunch with a friend or taking a raise at work, these opportunities will come and go whether we like it or not. The common phrase "The world is your oyster," comes from Shakespeare's  "The Merry Wives of Windsor".  After hearing this saying from many, we wonder what it truly means.

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." ― Confucius

"The future is limitless." ― Peter Thiel
The World Is Ours

As it has been studied, it is known that it is simply stating how the world is ours to enjoy. Even though we may be told this on a constant basis, we sometimes forget to act on it. Just like anything in life, it is sometimes more difficult to go out there and do it then just say it. It is simply easier said than done. In order to prioritize our lives, it is important to put the hectic drama aside and focus on the good that can come from it all. When times are tough, we sit and moan. Instead,

we should be taking advantage of the lesson that can be learned from this bump in the road. As much as our subconscious is telling us this is a terrible idea, it truly is not. Take on all opportunities that come our way. Learn to say yes to all the good and no to all the bad. If it is a challenge, take it on. What could be the worst that could happen if you screw up?  In the end of the day, we all learn from our mistakes. Success doesn't come easily and without a few failures. Just because life can

sometimes put us down, doesn't mean we have to sink with it. We should rise to the occasion and make the best of every opportunity thrown our way. Whether we believe it is bound to help or hurt us. Remember as Shakespeare once said "The world is your oyster." We are fortunate enough to be in a position where we are ready to take all opportunities that life has to offer. And if believed that this isn't the case, just know that it always is. Over time, we have learned that life

is good. And if you are good to it, it will give you exactly that. If we think that the world is out to get us at all matters of the day, it's not. As we conquer those small bumps of fear or anger, good will continue to come out of it. There is always a rainbow on the other side and if we take on opportunities that are wild and out of our league, we will be so thankful for accepting that our world is our oyster. Because whats ahead is beautiful and filled with chances of a life time. The world is ours.
