My quotes today are on Opportunity:
Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.Â ~Hugh Allen
When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break.Â ~William Hale White
Opportunity is often difficult to recognize; we usually expect it to beckon us with beepers and billboards.Â ~William Arthur Ward
Opportunity is a bird that never perches.Â ~Claude McDonald
Opportunity is as scarce as oxygen; men fairly breathe it and do not know it.Â ~Doc Sane
Opportunities do not come with their values stamped upon them.Â ~Maltbie Babcock
Nothing is so often irretrievably missed as a daily opportunity.Â ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
It’s important to remember to take opportunities., without them we would not be where we are.Â I have taken so many opportunities that have played a part to get me where I am.Â Some of them worked out and some didn’t but without the ones that didn’t I wouldn’t be who I am and have the values, integrity and ethics that I do.Â It’s one thing I can say, everything both good and bad I have experienced are part of what make me who I am and that is why even the opportunities I took that ended up not working out I am still thankful for.
What about you?Â Are you able to use every opportunity (good and bad) to better yourself?Â Have a great Sunday and don’t forget to link up and visit all the other participants.
