When Opportunity Knocks!

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?

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
