Opportunities are created by hard work, hope, an open mind, and vision. If you are missing one of those ingredients you will miss many great chances. The thing about opportunities is you shouldn’t take every single one. Many of them are not aligned with your overall purpose. That is where vision comes in. An open mind is about humility and creativity. Hope is being positive and optimistic even when there is no reason for it. Finally, hard work is the foundation – nothing happens without action. Nothing.
