Opportunity

Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
- Forbes, B. C.
Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Wicker, John

2.
Opportunity is ever worth expecting; let your hook be ever hanging ready, the fish will be in the pool where you least imagine it to be.

3.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
Kirkpatrick, Kirk

4.
Too often the opportunity knocks, but by the time you push back the chain, push back the bolt, unhook the locks and shut off the burglar alarm, it's too late.
Coolidge, Rita

5.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
Hill, Napoleon

6.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Schucman, Helen

7.
Was a great high wall there that tried to stop me. Was a great big sign there said private Property but on the back side it didn't say nothing. That side was made for you and me.
Guthrie, Woody

8.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.

9.
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Herold, Don

11.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Young, Brigham

12.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
Koch, Sally

13.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

14.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Nightingale, Earl

15.
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.
Maltz, Maxwell

16.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.

17.
We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization
Arbiter, Gauis Petronius

18.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.

19.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.

21.
Many of us spend our lives searching for success when it is usually so close that we can reach out and touch it.
Conwell, Russel H.

22.
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.
Rockerfeller, David

23.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.

24.
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.

25.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Flanders, Alberta

26.
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.

27.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Landers, Ann

28.
Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.
Marden, Orison Swett

29.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.

30.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew

31.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.

32.
You have to recognize when the right place and the right time fuse and take advantage of that opportunity. There are plenty of opportunities out there. You can't sit back and wait.
Ellen Metcalf

33.
The best men are not those who have waited for chances but who have taken them; besieged the chance; conquered the chance; and made chance the servitor.
Chapin, Edwin Hubbel

34.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
Marx, Karl

35.
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.

36.
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.
Anderson, Bob

37.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
Buffett, Warren

38.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Publilius Syrus

39.
Men who are resolved to find a way for themselves will always find opportunities enough; and if they do not find them, they will make them.
Smiles, Samuel

40.
Each problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.
Sugarman, Joseph

41.
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

42.
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.
Benington, Lucy

43.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Laver, Rod

44.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Tina Fey

45.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.

46.
You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.
Buffett, Warren

47.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.

48.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
Patty Hansen

49.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.

50.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
YoungJr., Whitney
