Opportunities are like water. You can hold it in your hands for just a few moments till it slips away. So what do you do to retain it? You simply need to make some preparations – have a bucket, mug, or a container within reach.
Well, that may sound absurd to some. Why would you always have those around you? It sounds pretty silly, doesn’t it? But here’s the thing. In that silliness, lies an important lesson that we sadly overlooked. And then we wonder why others got it all going for them and not us.
Preparation or being ready, does not happen when the opportunity comes knocking on your door. Truth is, you will never know when it will come, so always be ready. It doesn’t hurt.
