Get Ready to Grab Opportunity

Jun 11, 2008
Every human being has infinite power and ability for achieving excellence. But due to lack of confidence and an absence of positive thinking, he avoids using these abilities and spends his time worrying about his ability to turn opportunities into achievements. One should learn the art of achieving life's goals from successful people who are able to walk through the door of opportunity whenever it swings open. They know how to get ready to grab opportunity when it presents itself. Their stories show the secrets of their success in converting opportunities into achievements. They are the people who focus on their target and get busy achieving it.

There is a well known success story that shows how important it is to grab an opportunity when it comes your way. Frank Sinatra, world famous singer and actor used to be a restaurant waiter. He was a good singer and sang whenever he felt like it. One day, when he was waiting tables, he got just such an opportunity. A gentleman, who was a big name in the music industry, was sitting in the restaurant. When Frank Sinatra passed his table, he stopped near it and started singing. The gentleman so liked Sinatra's singing that he gave him a break as a professional singer. The rest, as you know, is history.

There is no fixed time for an opportunity to come to your door. Sometimes you get the opportunity of a lifetime when you are still young and sometimes you may have to wait for a very long time. But you must be ready at all times because you never know when it will come knocking. Here are some tips to help you to be ready:

Firstly, you should develop your skills and hone them to perfection. You will need these to perform any task that is given to you. These skills will enable you to give one hundred percent at all times.

Secondly, examine yourself to see if you are internally prepared to face any kind of difficulty? This includes any difficulty may come from the struggle to succeed as well as difficulties that may arise when you are face to face with the opportunity you have dreamed of finally presents itself. Does your character have the potential to handle success? It requires strength of character to handle big success.

Thirdly, see if you are performing at the peak of your potential in your present position. If you are lagging behind, improve your performance so that you are noticed. If the door of opportunity opens, you could be invited in because you are the best in your present job and can be relied upon to handle new and higher responsibilities.

Every one has his own luck. Some people get such opportunities many times in their life while some people get just one chance in life. Don't panic. Your door to opportunity will open one day if you have the desire to push ahead in life. Be ready and just walk in without losing your patience or confidence!

Success does not come all of a sudden. It needs a lot of courage and patience. Once you develop the habit of working hard while you head in the right direction, your goal comes closer. So when you are standing at the door of opportunity, you should make sure that you are the best candidate when the door opens and are ready to grab the opportunity.
