How To Stop Running Out Of Business Opportunities.

Lack of opportunity isn’t your problem. Vision is. And bravery. We often try to make our business problems about what we don’t have. Not enough medication. Not enough money. Not enough time. Not the right location.

It comes naturally to rationalize failure as if life is especially unfair to us.

But that’s just not realistic.

And that natural reaction is limiting your ability to achieve surprising feats of greatness.

Opportunity isn’t served up randomly. It’s all around you. All the time.

You just don’t let yourself see it all the time. The pain from your past and the fear in your present limit your ability to see and take advantage of the opportunity for you to be amazing.

You decide if you find a breakthrough. You determine if you get lucky.

Not chance or chaos or coincidence.

Opportunity is always there. It doesn’t change. It doesn’t go away. It doesn’t play favorites. It’s just waiting to be taken advantage of. Waiting for you to realize that it is there.

The problem with your business might not be your sales plan or your marketing strategy or the need for a better culture. You might have a problem spotting opportunity.

And that’s not an education problem. Or a finance problem. Or even a personnel problem.

It is an inspiration problem. An attitude problem.

A belief problem.

Success is out there waiting for you to find it. The opportunity to be amazing has never been more within reach then it is right now.

Are you looking for it?  Or do you need an “opportunity adjustment”?

Fight for you. Believe in you.

Bleed. Cry. Conquer.
