“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” – Seneca
Do you ever wonder how your life might have ended up differently? What were those turning points where your actions led you down one path instead of another? And which of those paths did you take, simply because you weren’t prepared to grab hold of an amazing opportunity?
As the video above demonstrates — with heartbreaking clarity — Seneca’s wise words are as true today as they were 2000 years ago. We approached tourists in the middle of a bustling square in Barcelona and offered them an opportunity of a lifetime, but they all turned it down. Why? Well, they said it themselves, “I don’t speak Spanish.”
Don’t make the same mistake. It’s never too late to learn!
