COMPLIMENTS of the season to you all.
Hope I find you well.2016 has gone and was filled with some tears ,joy, thrills and spills.
Another 12 new chapters have come and they’re filled with 365 new chances.
Why tell you all this? This is not to impress you, but to impress upon you that you do not have an excuse for not changing the fortunes of your life.
This is your time remember, champions see stars in scars. As usual people always say these words “new year, new things” when it comes to New Year.
But here is the question: what is the new thing? In my own estimation new thing is the decision that one has to make to live life differently thus in the positive sense.
Without wasting time, lets talk about how to start 2017 strong. Starting 2017 strong begins with opportunity.
Opportunities are everywhere. A lot of times people spend their lives complaining about situations. Others invest their time discovering the opportunities that come with difficulties.
Discipline yourself to be alert to opportunities. Wherever there is a crisis there is an opportunity. You need to learn to discover opportunities. Brave people turn problems into opportunities. What is an opportunity? An opportunity is simply a chance for advancement.
In my own words it is a progress or profit. What a definition! Every problem carries with it an equal opportunity.
Think of any problem and what it would take to address it. There are a lot of people who go places to look for opportunities sometimes you don’t need to go far or even travel. You need to look around you.
Many a time opportunities that most people look for are actually sitting next to them.
You need to look at what you have and make the best of it. Instead of looking for opportunities, create opportunities for yourself and make yourself visible in life.
Whenever you are given an opportunity to do something, do it to the best of your ability. You never know who’s in the crowd, you never know who will come across the work that you would have done.
You don’t know where your breakthrough will come from. Sometimes it is the small things that we take for granted that will give us the oppor- tunity that we need in life. Whatever gift you have is a great starting point.
They’re people who spend the whole day on Google searching for opportunities but they cant spend the same time searching within themselves how they can bring out opportunities within them.
So dear fellas, in whatever you do, distinguish yourself by going an extra mile beyond what everyone will do. In the long run, you will enjoy the dividends.
It doesn’t matter that you’re small at the workplace, do not be afraid to give it your best. Resolve to try and fail than never to try at all.
Most often people don’t want to give audience to the possibility of success. Most people are discouraged by fears of failures rather than the joys of success.
In wrapping up, the greatest risk in life is in not taking risk but you have to risk yourself in order for you to gain, opportunities are everywhere, it is sometimes how we react to them that makes the difference!
So Cool people discipline yourself to be alert to opportunities for you to be strong this year.
