Opportunity Knocks - But do you answer?
I had an experience with this that made me realize that I was still
subject to the insecurities that I condemn in most of my posts.
As with all problems, realizing there is one is only the first step.
I had been planning on starting my business full time and set
a launch date that gave me the time needed to prepare.
Through a friend I was recommended before launch to provide services
and my immediate reaction was that I am not yet prepared.
What exactly made me so unprepared that I would even consider
turning away a potential client in the field that I was trying to break into?
Fear, nothing more, nothing less.
Fear of failure, success or rejection was irrelevant.
The goal is to recognize and overcome it before the chance passes you by.
Opportunity Knocks - Do you hear it?
There are endless reasons that we would be oblivious to an opportunity.
The most unfortunate of all is ignorance.
I am not using ignorance to mean uneducated but rather the inability
to see an opportunity even if it lands in your lap.
A complete lack of vision will have you thinking there are no opportunities.
In my case I had the opportunity to treat this as a "soft" opening and
refine my sales technique in a friendly environment.
This is much less stressful or damaging than being
baptized in fire by the general public's harsh analysis.
Maybe that is too specific to make my point.
Opportunities are everywhere if you open your eyes.
If you see a demand that has no supply for anything in your vicinity
you can fill that gap easily if you see it first.
Let me be clear that beneficial situations and experiences
do not always involve money in the moment.
Growing through opportunities that you have said yes to will always
yield a learning experience that you will appreciate.
