Man has laid waste opportunities that surfaced. Man has ignored opportunities that passed by.
Yet men complain of non-availability of opportunities. I say, “You didn’t search well!”
“Great people in life never waited for opportunities to surface, they creates theirs.” That was something I learnt while attending a JCIN MAPOLY Leadership Academy.
I complained that opportunities weren’t made available for me to utilize, so I learned opportunities surface daily.
There’s not like opportunity comes but once, but most time we’re too ignorant to notice.
More so, if you cannot identify an opportunity, create one yourself rather than laying waste your potentials.
Human beings are the greatest resources ever known to history. Take for example, Some parents deprive their children the privilege of education all in the name of poverty.
There’s now free education, at least public secondary schools, financial aid exists, whereas various scholarship programs surface daily, yet none apply.
When I received a lecture from Sir Grrraciano (FOS – Figure of Speech Founder), and I complained of lack of opportunities for writers, he told me to create one myself, thus I created a blog. Which has been greatly useful.
“When Opportunities do not surface, Create opportunities for yourself.” – Praise Osawaru
Then the next question is, “How does one create opportunities?” Another talk for another day.
Do leave your comments below, let me know what you think. Merci.
