Be able to say yes

Think for a moment about your ideal job. What would you do if you could do anything? What would bring you as much money, or satisfaction, or professional fulfillment, or challenge as you could ever want?

If you were offered that ideal job right now, today -- would you be able to accept it? Would you be able to handle the responsibilities? Would you have the necessary skills, the knowledge, the contacts, the insight to succeed?

Would you be able to say yes to the opportunity of a lifetime, if it came along today? Opportunity, to be realized, takes more than willingness. It takes preparation. When you’re prepared for opportunity, it comes to you in abundance.

— Ralph Marston
