Opportunity: n. a circumstance(s) which makes the achievement of a goal(s) more probable and frequently the circumstance(s) itself has been a goal(s) so that a further goal(s) is more probable
Be ready when opportunity knocks. Some fortunate humans have gotten a great education, have good genes or good memories, have the right connections, and have many opportunities to start out on a successful career path and relatively easily find their soul mate. They indeed have made themselves ready for opportunity and get it sooner because they were probably born into a rich, smart, caring family with good social connections.
Most of us unfortunately have to settle for a mediocre education, have average memories, land the best job which we can find, and hopefully bump into a compatible member of the opposite sex.
Then we find out that the only way to find better opportunities is to work hard, change jobs, learn new skills and knowledge, and make new contacts with humans who may help us to land a better future job. We find the going tough and it may take many years before we get a great opportunity to knock on our door.
For many of us that great opportunity never surfaces because we are so wrapped up in the struggle to survive that we never really have the time to prepare for the opportunity which we really would like to have. Sometimes the opportunity which we are hoping for never knocks because we have set our goals too high and they are just not realistic goals because we just don’t have enough inborn talent and persistence.
