Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
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

2.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.

3.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor

4.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Publilius Syrus

5.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser

6.
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

7.
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

8.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Iacocca, Lee

9.
Where one door closes, another opens.
Quixote, Don

10.
Every minute starts an hour and every minute is a new opportunity. Each time the clock ticks you have a chance to start over, to say, do, think, or feel something in such a way that you and the world are better for it.

11.
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.
Downs, Lawrence

12.
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

13.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Laver, Rod

14.
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

15.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
Wicker, John

16.
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

17.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
Woolf, Virginia

18.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Syrus, Publilius

19.
Little opportunities should be improved.
FeNelon, Francois

20.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew

21.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Tina Fey

22.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
Lehmann, Rosamond

23.
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

24.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Schucman, Helen

25.
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

26.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the

27.
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.

28.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Nightingale, Earl

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

30.
Right now a moment is fleeting by! Capture its reality in paint! To do that we must put all else out of our minds. We must become that moment, make ourselves a sensitive recording plate. give the image of what we actually see, forgetting everything that has been seen before our time.
Cezanne, Paul

31.
Opportunities are everywhere.The recession might be drawing to a close, but its continuing legacy is employers' reliance on short-term staff.There may be fewer jobs for life, but there are more jobs in a lifetime.
Benington, Lucy

32.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke

33.
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

34.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
YoungJr., Whitney

35.
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.

36.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
Phillips, James

37.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
Hill, Napoleon

50.
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
