Best Quotes about Opportunity
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
When fortune knocks open the door.
The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.
Marden, Orison Swett
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
What is opportunity, and when does it knock? It never knocks. You can wait a whole lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare yourself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live -- with your self-respect alive and growing.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
The sad truth is that opportunity doesn't knock twice. You can put things off until tomorrow but tomorrow may never come. Where will you be a few years down the line. Will it be everything you dreamed of. We seal our fate with the choices we take, but don't give a second thought to the chances we take.
Some say opportunity knocks only once, That is not true. Opportunity knocks all the time, but you have to be ready for it. If the chance comes, you must have the equipment to take advantage of it.
One of the earliest lessons I learned as a child was that if you looked away from something, it might not be there when you looked back.
Wideman, John Edgar
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word'crisis.'One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.
John F. Kennedy
If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness.
There is only one optimist. He has been here since man has been on this earth, and that is man himself. If we hadn't had such a magnificent optimism to carry us through all these things, we wouldn't be here. We have survived it on our optimism.
Opportunities, many times, are so small that we glimpse them not and yet they are often the seeds of great enterprises. Opportunities are also everywhere and so you must always let your hook be hanging. When you least expect it, a great fish will swim by.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
People think that at the top there isn't much room. They tend to think of it as an Everest. My message is that there is tons of room at the top.
If you want to succeed in the world you must make your own opportunities as you go on. The man who waits for some seventh wave to toss him on dry land will find that the seventh wave is a long time a-coming. You can commit no greater folly than to sit by the road side until someone comes along and invites you to ride with him to wealth or influence.
Gough, John B.
Opportunity creates desire.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
You can't always wait for the guys at the top. Every manager at every level in the organization has an opportunity, big or small, to do something. Every manager's got some sphere of autonomy. Don't pass the buck up the line.
This American system of ours. call it Americanism, call it capitalism, call it what you like, gives to each and every one of us a great opportunity if we only seize it with both hands and make the most of it.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
A good deal happens in a man's life that he isn't responsible for. Fortunate openings occur; but it is safe to remember that such breaks are occurring all the time, and other things being equal, the advantage goes to the man who is ready.
Born often under another sky, placed in the middle of an always moving scene, himself driven by the irresistible torrent which draws all about him, the American has no time to tie himself to anything, he grows accustomed only to change, and ends by regarding it as the natural state of man. He feels the need of it, more he loves it; for the instability; instead of meaning disaster to him, seems to give birth only to miracles all about him.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
Make the iron hot by striking it.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Opportunities are everywhere.The recession might be drawing to a close, but its continuing legacy is employers' reliance on short-term staff.There may be fewer jobs for life, but there are more jobs in a lifetime.
Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: Are your ready?
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Subtract from the great man all that he owes to opportunity, all that he owes to chance, and all that he gained by the wisdom of his friends and the folly of his enemies, and the giant will often be seen to be a pygmy.
Colton, Charles Caleb
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Every minute starts an hour and every minute is a new opportunity. Each time the clock ticks you have a chance to start over, to say, do, think, or feel something in such a way that you and the world are better for it.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
One cannot expect to coast along and rise automatically to the top, no matter what friends you may have in the company. There may have been a time when, in large corporations, a person could rise simply because he had a stock interest or because he had friends in top management. That's not true today. Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you're not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.
Many of us have heard opportunity knocking at our door, but by the time we unhooked the chain, pushed back the bolt, turned two locks, and shuts off the burglar alarm -- it was gone.
