So much of your success is dependent on your ability to recognize that opportunities are all around you. If you only recognized it you would realize the huge potential you have in front of you. Many people ask me how to recognize an opportunity when it’s truly right there in front of their own eyes!
You know, opportunity doesn’t usually come along and BANG on your door…or a streak of LIGHTNING comes flashing down at you from the sky. Frankly, it will just come creeping up to you one lovely day, totally unannounced and take you completely by surprise…so much so you didn’t even notice its presence. Does that sound too philosophical? Nah…I think its right on target!
Just think of different situations that you handled or failed to handle…or even failed to perceive that they even existed…until it was too late…and the parade passed you by! By way of example, how many times have you met someone for the first time and you didn’t even leave your business card with them; or the chance to attend a convention or a seminar and you didn’t attend!
Well, in my opinion, these were golden opportunities that you failed to recognize.
I’m sure, that you can make a long list of such instances when opportunity knocked at your door and you didn’t even care to let it in!
“If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it.”
Be the best you can be….every day!
