Don’t be a person who says, ” Ready! Aim, aim, aim, aim”.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it ! No matter how small the opportunity may be, use it!
One of the deceptions of an unproductive life is that today is not the critical, important, decisive day. Every day comes bearing its gifts. Untie the ribbons, tear into the wrapping, open it up. Write on your heart every day that it is the best day of the year. By the time the fool has learned to play the game, the players have dispersed, and the rules have changed. Don’t find yourself striking when the iron is cold. Instead, scratch opportunity where it itches.
” Successful leaders have the courage to take action while others hesitate”.
You never know what you can do until you try. A secret of success in life is to be ready for opportunity when it comes. Ability is nothing apart from opportunity.
Time flies: It’s up to you to be the pilot. “Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits”. It is an observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste. A secret of success is to do something else in the meantime. Make quick use of the moment.
It is later than you think. Be ready now. God’s alarm clock has no snooze button. It doesn’t do any good to ” stand up and take notice” if you sit down as soon as opportunity comes by. Look at it, size it up, make a decision. ” If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done…Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow—perhaps it all will.”
William Ward has a recipe for success: “Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing and dream while others are wishing.” There is no time like the present and no present like time. Those who take advantage of their advantage get the advantage in this world.
Don’t find yourself at the end of your life saying, “What a wonderful life I’ve had!
I only wish I’d realized it sooner.
