DASH004 When Opportunities Knock

Posted on : 10-06-2012 | By : Lynn | In : Career Stuff



From all the wisdom and words that I’ve put together over the years regarding opportunity, there are a couple of aspects that speak the most loudly to me:

1.) You have to be able to recognize an opportunity when it knocks.  Sounds like common sense, doesn’t it?  But there are times when a hidden belief system gets in the way (such as: X person became famous singing because they were lucky–insert person, place and ability to fit your life).  I believe that most of the time what can be confused as luck is really when a person recognizes and seizes an opportunity.

2.) Allowing yourself to strike when the opportunity is present, alive and available.  In other words, going for “it” and putting all your experiences, talents and wisdom to work.  Hesitation can be the wind that shuts the door.

How do you know when opportunity is knocking for you?  Look honestly through your past to find glints of opportunity in your reflection.  Did you act or did you hesitate?  How will you respond the next time that opportunity knocks for you?
