Here's Something To Feel Good About Today!
open doorway"What is opportunity, and when does it knock? It never knocks. You can wait a whole lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare yourself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live/with your self-respect alive and growing." Maxwell Maltz
When I was six, I decided to sell Christmas trees to our neighbors. I did not ask my parents for permission nor did I engage anyone else to assist me. I simply broke off several evergreen branches and proceeded to ring doorbells up and down our suburban street. I never for one second considered being rejected. I felt no fear or trepidation as I went from door to door asking, "Would you like to buy a Christmas tree?" The amazing thing is that at 5 cents a branch, I actually collected 75 cents. Not bad for a gutsy kid with a not so great product. Looks like it didn't matter so much what I was selling as that I presented myself and my product with confidence.
As adults we tend to lose some of our childhood spontaneity. We become more fearful of stepping out of the familiar and safe to take a necessary chance. Successful people know that nothing happens without first taking that leap of faith. You will never know what is possible unless you try.
Opportunities are waiting for you every day! Ask yourself today is there something I have neglected to do, someone I need to contact, a proposal I have been procrastinating to finish? If you want to be successful you must knock on many doors. Be prepared to walk through them with confidence when they open.
