Opportunities appear not to those who wait, but to those who look.
The problem is, not everyone looks. Most sit on their divans and wait for the apple to fall, although there is no tree around. Okay, sometimes there is – outside – but most of the time, the leaves are not even ruffled by the wind.
And these people – they wonder – why isn’t there anything happening in my life?
When the cost of opportunity is nominal, a pittance.
It can be bought by small talk, an exchange of looks, or a simple email. But there has to be a dash of audacity, daring, bravura.
You only need a window – an opening that will give you glimpse of what is beyond – the something that is out there, and good, and waiting for you. You also need a sprinkling of imagination to spur you on so you can take the first step.
And the second, and the third.
But some of the time, you do not even need a window – you can find or create opportunity.
