Motivational Quotes

Opportunity

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
Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
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

2.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
Barton, Bruce

3.
The back of one door is the face of another.
Proverb

4.
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.

5.
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?
Carson, Johnny

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

8.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Hill, Napoleon

9.
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.

Where one door closes, another opens.
Quixote, Don

13.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
Wicker, John

14.
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.
Brown, Les

15.
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

Cromwell, Oliver

Phillips, James

20.
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

21.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Rowland, Helen

22.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

23.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.

God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.

25.
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

26.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
Proverb, Greek

27.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser

28.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Demosthenes

29.
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

30.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.

31.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.

Forbes, B. C.
