Opportunity Knocks 1000 Times

Written by Steve Gillman

You've heard people say that opportunity only knocks once. I say it knocks a thousand times, or at least it can. The problem is, we often don't listen, we don't see, or we don't want to work. The biggest problem, though, is that opportunity really isn't opportunity, if you're not ready for it.

A couple I know had a business handed to them for free. The owner didn't want to deal with it anymore, even though it made money. He had other things going on in his life. He couldn't just call it quits, however, becauserepparttar lease on repparttar 138842 building had nine months to go. This is where my friends enterrepparttar 138843 story. Why did they have a business given to them?

They listened, and letrepparttar 138844 man tell his story.

They looked atrepparttar 138845 business, and sawrepparttar 138846 opportunity.

They worked, doing what it took to benefit from their "good luck."

The owner agreed to give themrepparttar 138847 business if they would simply take overrepparttar 138848 lease onrepparttar 138849 building.

Get Ready For Opportunity

The biggest reason "opportunity knocked" however, includes repparttar 138850 others, and goes beyond them: They were ready.

They had a little bit of money to handlerepparttar 138851 transition, they had previous experience with a small business, and they were willing to learn what they needed to learn.

"Light House"

Having a mind which did not have any doubt or confusion or distraction, is another requisite to achieve success.

Thought pattern of everybody forms an important aspect to get this state of mind.

There are many thought patterns,which forbid us to have such state of mind.

The first and foremost thought pattern that everybody should have is that we should not have even a bit of thinking to do undesirable things or unfavorable things to others.

Even if you are not able to do desirable things to others,you should not think about to do undesirable things to others.

I am referring a Tamil(one ofrepparttar oldest Indian language)proverb here. The Proverb is "Marappom Mannippom".It means, "Let us forget and forgive".

Jealousy isrepparttar 138825 next thought pattern which block everybody's journey to success.

You won't get anything to gain for yourself out of jeleousy.But you invite diseases like blood pressure,tension,etc.,out of jealousy.

Jealousy is seen common amongrepparttar 138826 peoples irrespective of their profession,business,studies,etc.,

Jealousy is not a progressive one to anybody who wants to achieve success but it ruins all repparttar 138827 chances of his/her progress,because h/she always think aboutrepparttar 138828 success of other person inrepparttar 138829 negative sense and forget or omitting or missing his chances to become successful in his career,business,profession or studies.

H/she forget to explorerepparttar 138830 possibilities to attain success in his field of profession. H/she don't have time to explore his possibilities,and always thinking about others in repparttar 138831 negative sense.

When his/her mind is diluted withrepparttar 138832 negative thinking of other person's progress, which we may call it as jealousy,his/her mind won't suggest or direct him to achieve success or anything for his welfare.

Because h/she already engaged his/her mind in a negative way.

So if you want to be success in your career take rid ofrepparttar 138833 jealousy from your heart.

When this is done your mind is crystal clear and will give you wonderful ideas,avenues for your progress,success,and welfare.

Obeying to your sub-conscious mind inrepparttar 138834 positive way isrepparttar 138835 next thought pattern that everybody should develop.You cannot find a true,loyal friend,philospher and guide than your sub-conscious mind.Because it isrepparttar 138836 best teacher built within you.

It will never drag you to a dead end unless you think inrepparttar 138837 negative sense about yourself and others.

It will always guide you forrepparttar 138838 best thing and not to bad thing.

You should be loyal to your mind.

You should be very sincere to your mind.

You should be integrated to your mind.

When you are loyal,sinciore,integrated to your mind,automatically you will be loyal,sinciore and integrated to your childrens,your spouse,your employer,your customers,your masters,and to your country.

If you are not loyal to your mind,then you should get ready to acceptrepparttar 138839 punishment and sufferings.

The punishment will not be awarded by any court from any land,but from repparttar 138840 court of your heart.

You may seen/heard numerous news/scenes like this.Murderer is absconding after committingrepparttar 138841 crime.Police are searching him in every nook and corner.

But he is surrendering voluntarily beforerepparttar 138842 police after some time.

Who and what made him to surrender?It is nothing but his sub-conscious mind alone hasrepparttar 138843 power to drive him to surrender or acceptrepparttar 138844 punishment forrepparttar 138845 crime he has committed.

It would never let him to sleep,think,eat,unless it drive him to surrender or accept repparttar 138846 punishment.Anybody can be cheated by anybody but nobody can cheat their sub-conscious mind. Doing favor to those who did wrong to you is another thought pattern that everybody should built.

Even if you are not able to do any favor to him/her,atleast don't do any undesirable thing to him/her.

You might have experienced many sufferings because of somebody.But don't take or give importance to those sufferings andrepparttar 138847 person who did wrong to you,to your heart.

Because these arerepparttar 138848 feelings and sufferings that will raise often fromrepparttar 138849 deep of your heart and won't allow you to do any progressive work for your welfare and to your family.

You will be always thinking about him/her and forget to think for your welfare.
