Prepare yourself

What is the best opportunity? It’s the one for which you’re the most fully prepared.

An opportunity is of value to you only when you’re ready to make the most of it. Nothing is more frustrating than seeing the opportunity of a lifetime right in front of you and not being able to do anything with it.

Opportunity, when it arrives, does not wait for you to get ready, for that is not its nature. So prepare yourself for the opportunity you seek before that opportunity comes.

Your preparation will not only enable you to seize the opportunity. By preparing for the opportunity, you actually help to make that opportunity real in your life.

The actions you take to prepare yourself for an opportunity clearly signal your expectation that the opportunity will indeed arrive. And what you sincerely expect, will be.

Prepare yourself, and the opportunity begins to come toward you. Prepare yourself, and you’ll be able to make the very most of it when it arrives.
