If you don’t come across the opportunity you want, you have to take the initiative to increase your chances of getting that opportunity.
Creating opportunities for yourself is the door. The particular opportunities you want and the plan for getting them depends on what vocation, market or personal interest you are pursuing. The opportunities you need to create can depend on developing personality, personal attributes or simply mechanical steps such as filing a resume. If you want to be an actress, you have to take a film test and try out for a role after having gone to theater school or gotten some relevant experience. These steps might be considered building the door more literally. Without a door, opportunity has nothing to knock on. The specific door you should build depends on what sort of opportunities you are interested in.
For Entrepreneur things are no better. Entrepreneurs take action in their own hands instead of waiting around for success to just come around the corner. They become successful because they strive for success. They open window of opportunities, instead of just waiting until it opens for them.
And like the quote above said, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” This just shows that you mustn’t leave your business’ success to chance. You have to take the necessary steps in order to reach your goal. In business, there’s no lucky break. It’s all about the preparations and the opportunities you make. You base how much work you’ve done by the results.
Success is never just handed out to entrepreneurs, we work for it. But most of all, we make them happen through our actions, preparations and the opportunities we make for our business and ourselves. Think about it.
Have you created great opportunities lately?
