Opportunity at the Door
If you're like me, you don't always recognize opportunity when it knocks.
Opportunity isn't always the ring at the doorbell with someone waiting on the other side, hands full of a giant check and balloons. Opportunity rarely takes out a full-page ad in a newspaper telling you to just come on down. Some of my best opportunities have been tiny little scratches by the handle or gentle taps on a pane of glass. A chance meeting at a Sunday market, Facebook search results for local art groups, even checking the Michael's app on my phone when the weekly ad comes out to see if my favorite paint is on a good sale.
Opportunities can come in very quiet and small knocks on the door. Once we get up the courage to open that door, it could lead to a whole new world of connection and inspiration. I'm reminded of a quote I wrote down a while ago that really struck me.
"Opportunity knocks at the strangest times. It's not the times, but how you answer the door." -Steve Gray
It can be difficult and even scary sometimes to open that door. It's natural for humans to fear the unknown, and you're human. (If not, then I'm impressed with the reach of my newsletter!) But sometimes, all you have to do is open it a crack, just a tiny crack to let some light in. And I've found that the more doors I crack open, the more I hear that little tap-tap-tap of opportunity.
There is a whole row of waiting doors, and there's a prize behind every one.
Are you looking for open doors or trying to get them open?  I can help you with that. Contact me and together we will find the joy on the other side.
