Success Lies In Developing The Opportunity At Hand


Success is one great but a lousy concept which mankind pursues day in and day out. Its definition is blob, so as the path to achieving and maintaining it.

Now and again, we wake up with the zeal and energy to pursuit success, aiming to achieve distinctions in our chase and living fulfilling lives.

Our strong desire to achieve the success we yarn for in order to better ourselves or to uplift our social standards leads us to question or neglect the talents and opportunities we have at hand.

It is very common to hear people saying “I wish I get that opportunity or when I get the opportunity, I will…”  More than not, we believe a new opportunity must exist or present it self for one to be successful.

Closely related to the above, we are also in-tune with a very deceiving concept of; there must be the existence of a new or extraordinary talent for one to be successful.

We are therefore in a constant search for new opportunities or talents, a search that has wasted and will continue to waste our lives if we do not subject our mindset to an immediate reconsideration.

Who said you need a new opportunity or talent to be successful? I cannot trace this mindset to any source. But like a global canker, it has reached us all, weakening our ability to find success within what we have already been blessed with.

I do not believe in finding any new opportunity anywhere, in fact, you will not find such surreal opportunities unless you relocate to Pluto. Even there, I still doubt if such new talent or opportunity will present itself to you.

What we are failing to grab is; crafting or developing the opportunity at hand and making the best of it. The words of Bruce Barton highlight this perfectly, “Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand.”

As we start a new week, consider looking within and developing the opportunity as hand. Remember, instead of us developing the opportunities at hand, majority of us waste ample time in search for new opportunities and talents which do not exist. Think quickly!
