I often recite to my clients one of my favorite quotes when we discuss opportunities
“If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you're not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later” Richard Branson
This is my tip of the week for this week
Seize the opportunity
There are two parts to this tip. The first
“When offered small opportunities in life, at work, or in education, take them on, these little opportunities may lead to something great, they are like the individual bricks that build who you can be. Or like the drops of water that make a puddle, if you create enough of them you make a pond, and so on. Don’t sweat the small things, take them on
The other part is this.
“When you’re offered a big opportunity, consider it carefully—even if it scares the heck out of you. In the end, high risk often leads to high reward. But if you turn down every opportunity that comes your way, you won’t even have the chance to succeed,”
This week, keep an eye out for opportunities to Engage, Develop, Grow and Evolve, sharpen your EDGE
Let me know how it goes, what opportunities did you take on, how did it feel , and what was the outcome?
Have a great week
