Weekly Motivation Messageopportunity

Do you look for opportunities or do you wait for them to “come to you?” A great quote from Robert H. Schuller and also perfect motto for success: “High achievers spot rich opportunities swiftly, make big decisions quickly and move into action immediately. Follow these principles and you can make your dreams come true.”

I just finished the Ultimate Reset and now starting an Insanity-Les Mills Pump Hybrid workout – even the Fit Test was tough! But if you want to try it with me, reminder there is still time to get a deal on Insanity as we’ve dropped the price of INSANITY
Challenge Packs
to $180 (regularly $205). That’s over $90 of savings if you were to buy these programs and products separately.

Awash in a sea of opportunity

Opportunity, we’re told, only knocks once.

That’s just plain stupid. Opportunity is where you find it, and if you learn how to look for it, you’ll find it all around you. No matter how difficult the economic situation, opportunities abound — but the ability to see them is what most people lack.

In each economic situation, there are people who make a lot of money — sometimes a boatload of money — because they see the opportunities around them, and grab ahold of those chances.

While many people stand around singing a chorus of “Woe, Woe is Me,” the opportunity seekers dive right in and find the places where money and advances can be made.

What’s the difference? The difference between these two groups is that the opportunity seekers have developed the ability to see the rose amongst the thorns — they look for the beauty and opportunity in any situation, and having looked for it, they find it.

I remember a few years ago, I bought a new car — a “pearl green” car, as I remember. I thought it was a rather impressive looking color — and yet as I drove around, I was amazed at the number of pearl green cars that were on the roads around me. Suddenly, it seemed as if I had bought the single most popular color for cars around. But what had happened was that I was suddenly attuned to the cars with that color — where before, they were just part of the background.

That’s the way it is with opportunity. When you develop the ability to see opportunity, you suddenly find that the world is full of things to do, and that most people just never look around to see it.
