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.
Best Quotes about Opportunity
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
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.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
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.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
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?
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
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
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
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.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
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
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.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Opportunity creates desire.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
The back of one door is the face of another.
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
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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.
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.
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.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Not being beautiful was the true blessing... Not being beautiful forced me to develop my inner resources. The pretty girl has a handicap to overcome.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
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
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
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.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
