Everyday we live brings new opportunities for leaders to grow, love, dream, and live with purpose.  Leaders think the best before thinking the worst.  They aren’t envious of the prosperity of others.  As a matter of fact, good leaders are happy when others experience success.

I have never been one to be jealous of another person’s success.  If anything, I have always been excited and happy for the success of others.

Any jealousy creates negative energy that can limit your ability to grow.  So, jealousy is quite counter-productive to your personal and business success.

Whether you are jealous or not, opportunity will knock.

What will you do when opportunity knocks?

It is not a matter of if, but when.  Opportunity will knock, but will you be ready when it does?

Since we know opportunity will knock, I want to prepare you for your opportunity when it knocks.  There are 3 strategies you can use to prepare for your success.

1. Embrace your challenges.  When you are able to see your trying times as stepping stones, you will focus less on the struggle and more on growth that will occur from the difficulty.  It has been proven that we grow stronger in the presence of adversity.  That is one of the reason why Friedrich Nietzsche said, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”

2. Be happy for the small things.  Many times we look for big opportunities to present themselves.  To be completely honest, you will come in contact with more small opportunities than the bigger opportunities.  How you handle the small opportunities will determine two things:

1) How you will handle the big opportunities and

2) How many big opportunities you will experience.

3. Surround yourself with people who are opportunistic.  I don’t believe opportunities are a matter of dumb luck (something good happening by chance, without being planned or deserved).  When you are intentional about surrounding yourself with people who are engulfed with opportunities, it is only a matter of time before you will experience your own opportunities.

Opportunities will knock, but make sure you are prepared for your opportunities.
