“My dictionary defines opportunity
as a set of circumstances
that makes it possible to do something.
The world has conditioned us to wait for opportunity,
have the good sense to spot it
and hope to strike at the appropriate time.
But if opportunity is just a set of circumstances,
why are we waiting around for the stars to align?
Rather than waiting and pouncing
with a high degree of failure,
you might as well go ahead
and create a set of circumstances on your own.
If you make the opportunity,
you will be first in position to take advantage of it.
We don’t have to wait for it.
We create it.”

“When one door closes,
but we often look so long
and so regretfully
upon the closed door
that we do not see
the one which has opened for us.”
~ Alexander Graham Bell more
“If you view
all the things that happen to you,
both good and bad,
as opportunities, then you operate
out of a higher level of consciousness.”
~ Les Brown more
“Though no one can go back
and make a brand new start,
anyone can start from now
and make a brand new beginning.”
~ Author Unknown
“And also don’t forget,
the reason opportunity is often missed
is that it usually comes disguised as hard work.”
~ Clifford Irving more
there are no real failures in life,
There are no true tragedies,
And there really are no problems,
only opportunities waiting to be recognized
as solutions by the person of wisdom.”
~ Robin Sharma more
“Don’t wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel,
stride down there and light the bloody thing yourself.
