I would have grabbed that opportunity? Would you?

Many do with opportunities as children do at the seashore. They fill their little hands with sand, and then let the grains fall through one by one, until they're all gone.

How often in life have we noticed someone else achieving great success, financial wealth, great lifestyle and called it luck?

There is a saying that the bigger the opportunity the faster it moves. Our attitude towards that fast moving opportunity will determine whether we capitalize or let it pass on and let someone else hold it. When someone else capitalizes and prospers on the opportunity we passed over, we have the gall to call them 'LUCKY'.

What potential lies in an acorn?

Opportunities are not luck; they are taken. Opportunities almost always look irrelevant, insignificant, small and, frequently challenging. The giant oak tree grows from a tiny acorn; however, you have to first get an acorn. The potential of its greatness lies in that acorn. You can count seeds in an apple, but you cannot count the apples in an apple seed.

The lesson friends is that the opportunity before you may not seem great at the moment, but in the future it can become like a huge tree brimming with fruits.

Opportunities come disguised as problems: Six signs that will reveal that what you may have before you is an opportunity rather than a problem.

  1. See the end, not the beginning.
  2. Get an opportunist's mindset.
  3. Avoid looking for an easy way.
  4. Be prepared for your day of opportunity – because it's disguised as today!
  5. Make the most of every circumstance.
  6. Grasp it with both hands – i.e., wholeheartedly and passionately.
