When Opportunity Knocks, and You’re Not Home, It Isn’t Waiting

“There is no victory at bargain basement prices.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower 

Opportunity Knocks


Ike might know a thing or two about victory and the cost of obtaining it.  I see so many people who want victory or success but are unwilling to “Cowboy Up” and pay the price to get it.  It seems like, in this day and age, we want everything handed to us, gift wrapped.  Even when someone who has already blazed the trail, comes along and offers to help us navigate the freshly cut path to success, we won’t do it.  We want to be at the Emerald City without having to walk the Yellow Brick Road.  We can’t just tap our heels 3 times and POOF! – Success. We don’t want help, we want it done for us.   I’m not sure if it’s fear, laziness, or complacency, that keeps most of us from success.  Even when an opportunity is cued up for us, the majority of us seem to just shrug our shoulders watch it pass us by, if we are even looking when opportunity knocks.  It’s not like the “Most Interesting Man in the World” ads that say, “When opportunity knocks and he’s not home, it waits for him.”

I want to be wrong about this. I want it to not be fear, not be laziness, not be complacency.  Maybe it’s lack of self-confidence, or lack of belief that victory or success is possible.

Tell me what you think, why do we as humans just let success pass us by, day after day?  Why are we unwilling to pay the price for success?

Boo Yah!
