Imagine walking in to a room and be presented with an opportunity that you did not expect. What will you do? Will you let it slide past you? Will you do an analysis of the situation before deciding on the best course of action? But what if it is time sensitive, like most opportunities? Will you just jump at it?
Before we go on any further, we need to remember that opportunities are all around us. If you cannot see them, you need to look harder. They do exist. Yes, it does require a mindset shift but once you have understand that your circumstances do not define you, you will be at a better position to train your eyes to look for opportunities everywhere, i.e. create them.
In life, it will do you a lot of good to always be in the prepared mode. That way, when an opportunity materialises in front of you, you are are ready to take it in stride. Often times, it is because of lack of preparation that causes one to forgo an opportunity. And we all know how sometimes the really good ones don’t come as often as we would like. Believing in luck is one thing, but I strongly believe that;
LUCK = PREPARATION + OPPORTUNITY
