When Oppotunity Knocks - Should You Answer The Door?

Just because there is a knock at the door doesn’t mean you have to let them in however you should open the door each and every time. It doesn’t cost anything to open the door except for maybe a few minutes of your time.

Opportunities come in all shapes and sizes and from many different places and sources. Some can lead to bigger and better things and sometimes they go nowhere. As the saying goes, nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Over the past while there have been quite a few knocks at my door and I have probably answered about 85% of them. Some have lead to great things and others have taken me nowhere but I am fortunate to learn from each and every one of them. Sometimes you just have to take a chance and gamble.

I have recently been presented with a great opportunity. Not only does this one pay it also provides great exposure. Now that’s a great thing but to be honest with you. I am more excited about the possibilities that could come from this particular opportunity which could bring some very big things for my business and in turn take my business to a completely different level.

The point I am trying to make is, when you are presented with an opportunity you should really look at all the angles, possibilities and the pros and cons before you make any hasty decisions. Maybe it doesn’t pay much but it has potential to lead to much bigger and better things down the road. Sometimes sacrifices are necessary in the short term to get where you want to be in the long term.

If opportunity knocks on your door, answer it. You may just end up being pleasantly surprised with who is knocking!
