We win half the battle when we make up our minds to take the world as we find it, including the thorns.

Be ready

Nothing is more frustrating than to see the perfect opportunity come along and not be able to seize it. That opportunity will surely come, so get ready and be ready.

Instead of looking for opportunity, work for it. Make the effort to be the person who has what it takes to make the most of the opportunity you seek.

Don’t merely wish for opportunity. For if that’s all you do, you won’t even recognize opportunity when it is right in front of you.

Consider what opportunity will ask of you. Then get busy and get yourself in a position to deliver exactly that.

Be ready, and the opportunity you seek will come. Be ready, and when that opportunity comes, you can tap into its immense value.

Work and prepare as if the ideal opportunity is headed your way. Because when you do, it is.

— Ralph Marston
