Get to work! You’ve heard it from a young age, from parents and teachers. No matter what you are devoting yourself to or spending hours to accomplish, you will reap rewards for your preparation and hard work.
There are so many things you can do while you wait for your opportunity to shine. Keep learning. Listen to those who have accomplished worthy goals. Stay current in your reading and practice, practice, practice. Coach Lombardi put it this way: “Only perfect practice makes perfect.”
I guess you could sit around with your fingers crossed, but action and practice will help avail yourself of opportunities. You’ll miss opportunities without action.
The worse thing is to one day get that opportunity and not be prepared. The second worse thing is to have some excuse why you are ready for that opportunity.
Watch this kid shine when one of his opportunities came.
