Don't Wait for Opportunity to Knock...

You've heard the phrase, when opportunity knocks you have to take it. Here's the problem...opportunity ain't knockin. Nope. There's nobody coming. If you're sitting on the couch waiting for opportunity to come to your door you'll be disappointed. Opportunities are seized. Opportunities come when you are already opening doors.

You have to be moving for something to happen in your life. People want everything handed to them. They don't want to do the hard work with the risk of no return. In order to get what you want you have to be willing to do things that may not work, fit, or just plain bad ideas.

We all go through this. I always wanted the end result without the process. Just put me on top of the mountain, so I can show off. There was no desire on my part to actually climb the mountain. That's when I realized what I was doing wasn't working. The reason it wasn't working is because I wasn't working.

It's that simple. You have to do it now. There can be no shortcuts. Instead of spending the weekend binging on television and video games read the books. Do the research. A friend of mine wants to start a business but he spends his free time watching videos on social media instead of researching the business he wants to run. He's waiting for opportunity to knock.
