"Don't be out in the backyard looking for 4 leaf clovers when opportunity come knocking at your front door."
This is one of my favorite quotes. What its saying is stop looking for luck, miracles or anything else other than what's right under your nose for opportunity. Most people stop at the first sign of resistance or hardship. And where do they go from that point? Everywhere....They look at any opportunity that may jump at them thinking it's the next big "thing" for them. Then, trouble hits and guess what? They are off to another opportunity. This can go on and on until they really examine what their life has to offer. It could take them years of trying, when they could have started 5 years ago. Such a waste.
Immediatly come to realize that you've got it, you may have just lost focus. It could take time if you don't observe and listen for that opportunity. I'm telling you, it's right under your nose. The answer is not necessarily in new a career, country, new article of clothing or even in relationships you develop with people.
If you get a chance to read the following two books you may know what I'm talking about, ACRES OF DIAMONDS and THREE FEET FROM GOLD.
Today's action step:
Sit down, alone and a quiet area, grab a pen and your journal. And write down some areas in your life you feel could hold opportunity. Then put some focus and work on those things daily. Even if it gets hard, keep going it will be worth it. I promise.
