Opportunity

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.
- Keller, Helen
Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
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

2.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Syrus, Publilius

3.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
YoungJr., Whitney

4.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Tina Fey

5.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
Jackson, Jesse

6.
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.

7.
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.

8.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
Woolf, Virginia

9.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Landers, Ann

10.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Publilius Syrus

11.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
Hendricks, Howard

12.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?

13.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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.
Mandino, Og

18.
The back of one door is the face of another.
Proverb

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Flanders, Alberta

22.
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.
Estefan, Gloria

23.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.

24.
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.
Thatcher, Margaret

25.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces

26.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Gracian, Baltasar

27.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Herold, Don

28.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
Krishna, Rama

29.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Hill, Napoleon

30.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?

31.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.

32.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.

33.
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

34.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.

35.
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

36.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew

37.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.

38.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Wicker, John

42.
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

43.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.

44.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Proverb, English

45.
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.
Meir, Golda

46.
Where one door closes, another opens.
Quixote, Don

47.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
Buffett, Warren

48.
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

49.
Opportunity creates desire.
Proverb, Dutch

50.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
