Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Seize the Opportunity

Seize the Opportunity

Seize the Opportunity

Luck is the sense to recognize an opportunity

and the ability to take advantage of it.”

Samuel Goldwyn, Entertainment Executive



As I see it . . . . . . . .

Seize the opportunity


Be a possibility thinker. Think in terms of what can be . . . . and you begin to see things in a difference light. Look that things with the attitude of what can be . . . . and you’ll see opportunity.


An opportunity can come into your life as a spark . . . . and unless you recognize it. That spark will flicker . . . . and will go out never to appear again. It becomes an unrecognized opportunity . . . . and fades away into the trash heap of unfulfilled opportunities.


To seize the opportunity you have . . . . be a possibility thinker with the attitude of seeing things not as they are . . . . but for what they can be. Most opportunities appear . . . . as a work in process . . . . and will take an effort to make them work. Opportunities are in things that other people did not recognize for there potential . . . . Or in things that others felt that it would take too much effort to make it work . . .  and a result has been abandoned.  


You have to the ability to recognize an opportunity in its present form  . . . . and to take that opportunity . . . . and work with it until you release the full potential of the opportunity.


To maximize an opportunity you have to be prepared . . . . to take full advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself.


Seize the opportunity because it passes this way only one time . . . . and there is no way to know what opportunity will turn into an opportunity of a lifetime.

Hi Lou Ludwig , Your message reminds me of blogging.  Things happen throughout the day, where we think, "That would make a good blog".  So I seize the opportunity and make a note of it to blog about later.

So true. I love this quote. If you can recognize opportunites, you can make things happen.
