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
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
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
The back of one door is the face of another.
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.
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?
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
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 must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Where one door closes, another opens.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
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.
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.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
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.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
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.
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.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
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
Opportunity creates desire.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
