We would add that, “success is when preparation and opportunity meet”, and you take action.
Preparation is about constantly doing what you do, mastering your craft and bettering yourself to be the best at what you do.
Opportunity is something that comes around all the time, some people notice it more than others. You need to take the blinkers off and look around you to see the opportunity, it is everywhere. If you do not find it, someone else will.
Action is physically taking the next step. Call the customer, visit the client, ask for the business. Do not ever fear ‘taking action’, they may desperately need your services or product and are just waiting for you to ask.
Opportunity without action is like a having a book that is full of knowledge but if you never actually read it, you will never gain any of the knowledge.
Knowledge is not power! Power is applying the knowledge and then taking action; only then do you gain power.
Happy Friday! Make your week about taking action.
