I just had to read what you wrote today because this is something near and dear to my heart.

I have a quote that I say and it sums up my philosophy. (Feel free to use this if you like, as long as you attribute it to me!)

Words of Wisdom
"The doors of opportunity are opening around us all the time. You have to have the vision to see what is possible on the other side and the courage to walk through them. You never know what opportunities for greatness are waiting for you."
~ Erin Prais-Hintz

I know that I wouldn't have had the opportunities I have enjoyed if I hadn't been open to their possibility. But more than that, I think that we sabotage ourselves and our abilities to act on opportunities. We get scared. We don't think that we deserve them when the Universe hands them to us. And we don't push ourselves. I am all about taking that first step through a door down a hallway with other doors and choices. The possibilities are dizzying and endless.

Thanks so much for your inspiraton today. I am now going to seek the opportunities that you reminded me are just waiting for me to be open to them.

Enjoy the day!

I often remember if I want something to "Ask!" A simple request can produce miracles and at the very least move you to your next step. Great post! And it's very timely.

This was a great post.

I don't have much to add, but I want to co-sign on the "social" aspect. The influence the people you know is invaluable - not just in terms of finding opportunities, but securing them as well.

Erin - Thank you so much for your wonderful, heartfelt comment. I really appreciate you sharing that quote with me. It was perfect for this post! I'm also of the belief that a lot of people have the tendency to sabotage their chance for opportunities because they don't realize that they are deserving of the options presented to them. It's so important to realize that we are given opportunities so often and it is up to us to take them and make the most of them.

Tess - Great, simple advice. When you want something, the best and quickest way to get it is to ask. It might seem simple, but it really is something that people forget about and I'm glad you brought it up in your comment. I'm definitely going to keep this is mind the next time I'm seeking something.

Tara Melissa - Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the post and I'm also glad you highlighted my point about being social. As you said, it's not only a great way to find opportunities, but it's a great way to secure opportunities. Great comment. Thanks!

that's a very useful post, especially when the person feels like he is stuck, keep up the good work :)

Love this! This is a great "how to" that can apply to all of us. And thank you for giving examples beyond the "be xxx" Sometimes I retreat when I'm stuck, but I know that being social is the way to start kickstarting the positive energy and get the ball rolling back to where it should be!

Farouk - I'm happy to hear that you found the post useful. I hope this post helps those who feel as though they are stuck in a rut. Though it may not seem like it, there are opportunities everywhere.

Laura - Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed this post and the examples I provided. Being social is one of the best ways to find opportunities -- though it can sometimes seems like the most difficult when you find yourself in a rut!

OMG that Thomas Edison quote is so bang on! I love it!

This is a great post that helped me look inside and reflect on myself. I agree, I liked the Edison quote too.

Derrick - It was definitely a perfect one for this post. Glad you liked it!

Lynsey - I'm happy that this post caused you to reflect. :) And I'm also glad you liked the Edison quote. As I said to Derrick, it seemed like the perfect quote for this post.

I like be watchful ... it reminds me to work on my powers of observation as a skill.

J.D. - That's a very good point. Being watchful and paying attention helps us to work on our observation skills -- which helps us to live more in the present moment too.
