The reality is in every opportunity we would find difficulties and in every adversity we will find possibilities, it is in our mind how to see it – Santhosh K Nair
Let me share about a statue which is there in entrance of Olympia Stadium since 8th Century BC in Greece where the first Olympic games started. This statue is been connected and is believed to have godly connection. This is known as statue of “KAIROS – STATUE OF OPPORTUNITY”. This statue is very unique as it is of a man with naked body on a rolling stone, with big wings, with long hairs which is projected to front moving in the opposite direction of wind. This statue has always been considered as statue of opportunity, I researched and found out few more pro founding meaning of its depiction defining a new meaning to us.
Kairos - is not wearing clothes depicting that purity of every opportunity or CREATION - it is up to each individual who grabs the opportunity to create or make it look the way they foresee it. We can make the opportunity look ugly by making it wear dirty dress or make our opportunity look fantastic and superb by making it wear elegant dress. It is purely ones outlook of how to Create and carry it in our mind. It solely depends on the person who grabs the opportunity.
Kairos – Even though having long hairs is Bald from behind, the hairs in spite of being long instead of going back side are going in the front. This depicts that opportunity when we see it approaching, grab it. We will not have anything to catch hold of, if we let it pass us. Do we understand that opportunities are never missed in life, someone else grabs it?
Kairos- is very young and shown as bloom of youth with a delicate blush to the beholder. It depicts that every opportunity is young and full of life.
Kairos – wings depicts that every opportunity has the potential to grow and fly high
Kairos- is moving on rolling stone depicting about the swiftness of opportunity, it does not stop anywhere for anyone as it keeps moving at a steady pace ahead.
When we see an opportunity we refuse to take it up letting it go, convincing ourselves with lame excuses or silly comments justifying our beliefs. No opportunities are bad as every opportunity has the potential to grow big with the right kind of mind set and efforts which creates the difference. After drinking a Coke or Pepsi, the Can is just a waste for you but that waste is a big scrap business for another person. Are we actually open to accept opportunities in our lives? Decision of grabbing opportunities is what makes difference between a successful person and a common man.
