Best Quotes about Opportunity
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.
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
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting 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.
When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us.
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
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
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
When fortune knocks open the door.
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.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Luck take a second look at what appears to be someone's good luck. You'll find not luck but preparation, planning, and success-producing thinking.
Schwartz, David J.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
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.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
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.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
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.
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
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
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.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
The lack of opportunity is ever the excuse of a weak, vacillating mind. Opportunities! Every life is full of them. Every newspaper article is an opportunity. Every client is an opportunity. Every sermon is an opportunity. Every business transaction is an opportunity -- an opportunity to be polite -- an opportunity to be manly -- an opportunity to be honest -- an opportunity to make friends.
Marden, Orison Swett
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.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Where one door closes, another opens.
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.
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
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
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.
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.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
