Prepared for opportunity

You cannot run and catch up to an opportunity you’ve already missed. Yet you can prepare yourself for the next one that is sure to come along.

The reason you missed that last opportunity is because you didn’t recognize it soon enough. The time to seize an opportunity is before it has paid off.

Opportunity is not a free ride that’s available only to those who are lucky or well connected. Opportunity is a fertile situation where value can be created, available to those who are willing to take the risk and do the work.

You see what you look for. To see opportunity, look for ways to help others, to create value, to make life more fulfilling and enjoyable, to solve problems, to learn and grow.

Prepare yourself by choosing to be generous, optimistic, enthusiastic, and willing to see the best possibilities. Opportunity emerges from a positive-facing perspective, so get yourself there.

The next opportunity is on the way. Get yourself in its path, ready to give your best.
