Opportunity Lies In The Midst Of Difficulty

Every problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.

You’ll find that every situation, properly perceived, offers you an opportunity. As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it. No matter how tiny an opportunity may be, use it. You’ll find new directions when you have an open mind and a willing hand.

Successful people don’t achieve their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They developed an opportunity that was at hand.

You must make your own opportunities if you want success. They are all around you. Open your eyes and act on them.
