Each day is filled with thousands of opportunities to change the story of our lives. -Michael Hyatt
Every year is a year of opportunity. Opportunity comes in ways that we don’t expect it; be it job promotion, new ventures, relationships or even meaning in life.
When opportunity comes knocking on our doors, some of us respond to it but others don’t.
It doesn’t matter how opportunity comes, but one thing is for sure, not everyone is and willing to grab that chance.
The reason being is that some of us are not brave enough to step out of our comfort zones to explore and embrace the differences and possible risks. We may be uncomfortable exploring new possibilities too, be it going that extra mile.
Thing is in the end, we only regret the chances we did’t take. So when opportunities come knocking on our doors, always be willing to take a chance because we’ll never know how perfect something could turn out to be.
There are 3 possible ways to make opportunities transpire.
In the world we are living now, it is tough to concentrate on the tasks that we are working on or the goals that we are trying so hard to achieve.
We are so hooked up with our gadgets that we start to be less attentive to important matters, tasks or even people’s feelings.
We tend to multitask so we give ourselves excuses to be late, or to slack around just because we need to attend to too many matters at the same time.
Stop giving ourselves excuses and start paying focus on things that really do matter; be it the business venture you wish to start, or when you wish to fly to another country to explore their cultures.

Acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses
We often times acknowledge our strengths but what about our weaknesses?
Both of our strengths and weaknesses are equally essential.
Why? By knowing our strengths, we are able to step up and contribute our skills and knowledge. Meanwhile, by acknowledging our weaknesses, we will be able to contribute the best that we can.
Everyone is not born perfect. Therefore, if you wish to start up a business venture, you and your partner can take some time to acknowledge both attributes in order for the business to grow.
One’s strength may be another’s weakness; the situation can be vice-versa. Thus, it is vital for us to understand our strengths and weaknesses so that we will be able to grab hold on the opportunities and not let it go to past.

Make a decision
Be it good or bad, we can’t tell.
We come to a point where we just don’t want to make decisions. This is normal to a sense that we as individuals are often distracted and influenced by people around us and life circumstances that we neglect the part where we need to make certain decisions.
Grabbing an opportunity is a decision that we got to make. A decision where you’ll be able to polish your skill and potential for the new opportunity.
