Opportunities come once in a while for some people. In fact, it rains on some people sometimes.
For me, an opportunity knocked just last month for me. A guidance counselor position was open at school and I decided to try and see if I am fitted for it. Although other people were somehow surprised by what I did, I still pursued my application. I went through the process (exam and panel interview), however, it wasn't given to me. Even though I did not get the job, I did not regret my decision because at least I took a chance and found out what He wants for me. I'd prefer that than being left with what ifs and regrets.
You may have to peek out through an open door at some point in your lives. Others may push you to try and see what's out there while others may hold you back and safely cuddle you in your comfort zone. But for me, it is better to try and see what's out there, to try and leave your comfort zone, rather than just stay where you are with a big question mark that will linger on till forever. Trying is better than doing nothing at all.
