NAPOLEON HILL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Opportunities are never just handed to you; they must be created.
Opportunities abound for every individual in every walk of life. They may
not be the opportunities that you prefer, but each opportunity of which you
take advantage leads to bigger and better opportunities. Physical and mental
handicaps may mean that you have to explore territories unknown to others,
but they also mean you have opportunities those others will never find.
Think of Stephen Hawking’s brilliant research on the nature of the universe
despite the fact that a crippling disease makes writing and speaking, as we
know it, impossible for him. Those who approach their jobs and careers with
enthusiasm always find plenty of opportunities, while those who complain
about no one ever giving them a chance are merely observers of life. When
you are determined that you will not allow others to determine your future
for you, when you refuse to allow temporary setbacks to defeat you, you are
destined for great success. The opportunities will always be there for you.
If there are adversities that you cannot overcome right now, remember to
capitalize upon them at a later date by looking for the seed of an
equivalent or greater benefit.
