“…Chance favors only the prepared mind”- Louis Pasteur
Be ready to embrace your opportunity. If you want to meet your opportunity, you must prepare your mind to embrace it. Opportunity favors only the prepared mind. if you prepare your mind, opportunity is yours.
Opportunity is not coming to you. You must get up and go search for it. It is closer to you than you think. It is with you. As John Maxwell put it, “Don’t wait for opportunity to knock. Opportunity doesn’t come to the door knocking. You have got to go out and look for it.”
“Opportunity favors only the prepared mind.”
To prepare for opportunity, you must do your own self-assessment. You must check what you have- your strengths and weaknesses. You must pay attention to what is happening around you. In other words, you must be self-aware. You must do your current job well.
Opportunity is closer to you than you think. Treat people with dignity, because you never know where your next breakthrough is coming from. Be ethical. Pay attention to what people are saying, buying, and selling. Read to know more about your industry, to know more about what you don’t know. Be curious. Ask great questions to understand more about yourself and your potential opportunity.
“Treat people with dignity, because you never know where your next breakthrough is coming from.”
Do your job well. Do not ignore the little things. Elbert Hubbard said, “The best preparation for good work tomorrow is good work today.” Whatever you are expecting tomorrow, prepare for it today. Your tomorrow is today. It starts today. Don’t waste it.
