237 Opportunity Quotes To See What You've Been Missing Out On

Opportunity

Lil Wayne once said that “opportunity knocks at my door but I run out through the back door thinking it's the cops". How many times has a similar scenario happened to you? An opportunity came looking for you, but you ignored it, didn't notice it, or you let it walk right past you. Only later did you realize that you had a good opportunity at hand, but you took it for granted, and now it's gone.

Sadly, many of us don't notice opportunities even if they were sprinkled all around us. Many times opportunities are hidden in plain sight but we may miss them because they don't look like we expect them to. Be always on the lookout because you never know. Observe everything happening around you and avoid getting sucked in by crowds.

Following what everyone else is doing and what the people before you have been doing all along doesn't give you space to explore and come up with new ideas. Sometimes use the path less followed, do things differently, and don't let fear stop you from doing new things. You don't have to wait and let opportunity locate you. The rules of life are not set in stone and they allow you to create your own opportunities!

We also tend to believe that opportunity comes to us based on luck. This mentality makes us think that only a select lucky few can get opportunities. However, opportunities are given to us the same way we all get 24 hours a day. Everyone gets equal opportunities to achieve their dreams, it all depends on being at the right place at the right time and seizing opportunity when it comes along.

With that said, here are opportunity quotes to encourage you to open the door when opportunity knocks, instead of running out the back!

A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them. This sequence is something that all achievers have in common.

A mistake is simply the price they pay to achieve success.

The Florida State Department of Employment was a pleasant place. It wasn’t as crowded as the Los Angeles office which was always full. It was my turn for a little good luck, not much, but a little.
