People say opportunity knocks, but in my experience, they do not knock, at least, not so that you'd hear them. They tend to show up a little more quietly. Not always, but mostly.
In fact, if we were to give opportunities a personality, they seem a little shy. They arrive in our space unannounced. And they tend to dress incognito. They don't have logos on their t-shirts and they never hand out business cards saying, 'Hey, I'm the opportunity you've been waiting/praying for'.
They realize what we sometimes forget, that the responsibility to connect with them is not theirs, but ours. They have an almost naive anticipation that we will be wise enough to use our eyes and ears, and be alert to them, and so they arrive very quietly, no fanfare, no big drum-roll.
So now that we've uncovered the 'true' nature of many opportunities, what opportunity have you been missing? Waiting for because you expected them to knock?
Here's wishing you wonderful opportunities to make your life more beautiful!
