So just thinking about Opportunity. What is Opportunity? How do you know its knocking? I don’t know. That’s a good question. To me any Opportunity is a situation or set of circumstances that when handled correctly and improve your current set of circumstances or situation, or place you on a level that you’ve never been before. So why do we let Opportunities pass us bye? Why do we sit on the fence weighing pros and cons, weighing pros and cons? I don’t know. But we do. I myself have been a person that has done this time and time again. But what I’ve started to realize is if you just say “Yes” to the opportunities that life presents to you, you end up a lot closer, to your goal and can many times accomplish your goal faster than you thought possible. So the question is what will you do when Opportunity knocks?

First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.”
― Octavia E. Butler, Bloodchild and Other Stories
A quote by Octavia E. Butler
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
