You never know where you will meet your opportunities. According to Jim Elliot, “Wherever you are, be all there.” Whatever you do, do it well. Because success and failure are watching you. If you do your work well, success will invite you for breakfast. But if you are not all there, failure will invite you for breakfast.
If you don’t want to have breakfast with failure, don’t wait for opportunities to come to you. They will never come. If you don’t want to have dinner with failure, go and find your own opportunities. In the words of Edward de Bono, “If you wait for opportunities to occur, you will be one of the crowd.” Do you want to be one of the crowd?
