As people with ambitious goals, we often struggle to find the right opportunities. Sometimes life seems full of obstacles and we can never catch a break. So, how do we get the right doors to open?
Leave your comfort zone. Rather than wait for opportunity to knock at our door, we need to go out and get it. We need to leave our comfort zone and create our own luck. That could mean networking with new people, going to events, or trying something new. Regardless of what it is, we need to put ourselves out in the world for others to recognize us.
Connect with the right people. The more people we know, the higher our chances of creating new experiences. When we put ourselves in to the world and meet others, we’re able to connect and grow. We may also find great friendships and relationships that bring opportunity into our lives.
Keep learning. Always stay a student. Learning is a life-long process and with it comes the knowledge to take advantage of opportunities that come our way. When we put ourselves in a position to keep growing, we enable our future success. We should take in all that life has to offer. If we’re aware and open minded, we’ll find ourselves in the right place at the right time.
Creating opportunity for ourselves is no easy task. It requires us to grab life by the horns. With determination and some hard work, we can see opportunity start to flood around us. Those who found success weren’t just “lucky” — they created their own luck.
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” -Milton Berle
