“Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.” Hugh Allen
What is opportunity and why do successful people appear to get more opportunities?
- a favourable juncture of circumstances;
- a good chance for advancement or progress.
Opportunity is like luck, you have to work hard to create it, and is the result of your habits. Life doesn’t just happen to you. It’s all about choices and how you respond to every situation. If you are in the habit of continually making bad choices, disaster often occurs.
Successful people have successful habits – unsuccessful people don’t!
Habits can be changed any time you choose to do so, but they wont change overnight. If you’ve had a habit for 30 years it might take a year or more to break it and ensure that, even under stress, your new successful habit controls your choices.
The culture of living for now and putting off payment until later has become a habit for many people. Instant gratification is not a successful habit and one you must work at resisting to have a successful, healthy and long life.
Have a terrific week Glenn and keep an eye out for the opportunities, no matter how big or small, that will propel you to success.
P.S. Life never completely closes the door on opportunity.
