So often we miss the opportunities right in front of us because they are not presented the right way or on “our” time. Many people think of opportunities as the one life changing job, trip, relationship, etc. And because many of us are looking for these “big” opportunities, we miss the everyday, small chances that are the true stepping stones to success and achieving our goals.
Opportunities are all around us. We just have to be aware of them. While there are certain “once in a lifetime” opportunities, most of the small everyday chances are what lead to the one big break. In today’s society, we often here of the one company or app that made it big overnight or the hottest product that went viral. However, we don’t hear about the insane amount of mundane, repetitive work the people behind these ideas or products invested day in and day out.
Something as small as the right introduction, the right idea, or being in the right place at the right time, which seems small in the moment, could lead to the once in a lifetime opportunity. So be aware and be present of how your opportunities are being presented.
And if you really don’t see any opportunities before you, then create your own. Find the right people, set up the right meetings, do the right work, and before you know it, the opportunity you were look for, is realized.
“The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.”
