Opportunity is the chance that knocks our door occasionally and it is left to us to identify it and make the best use of it. When opportunity and our preparation are combined together we are considered lucky. But we should not wait for opportunities since they are almost unrecognizable and come in any form. Orison Marden says this thus “don’t wait for extra ordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities, strong men make them”. A man who is drowning in the floods clutches at a straw which is a great opportunity for him. Even in dire straits, there is a silver lining which is visible at times but invisible most of the time. As a Hindu proverb goes, “a man who misses his opportunity and monkey who misses his branch cannot be saved”. Here is a great collection of quotes on opportunity and share them with your friends to make the best use of it.
