Opportunity

In one of my post I mentioned that skills brings money, which is true if you know where the opportunity lies.

As the famous saying, "Beauty is in the eye of beholder", a person can see opportunity in every adversity if he wishes to.  What will you do if you were stuck at an airport and flights get canceled?  Not your fault but what will you do? There is an important meeting and you have to make it to the meeting.  Now what?

I know not everyone is like Sir Richard Branson(Founder of Virgin Atlantic).  When faced with similar situation he immediately did the math and asked fellow passengers if there was a flight, will they travel along with him and pay the fare.  Everyone agreed.  Sir Branson collected the money from the passengers and rented a plane.   Boom.

Don't get nervous next time, when your car gets broke or system crashes, it is not the end of the world.  Try to figure out where the opportunity lies. 

Opportunities exist all the time.  Right now there are more opportunities than even 2 years before.  But one will find it only if one looks for it.  Even in the recession period more companies were founded by young Entrepreneurs than 3 years before. 

Best investment opportunities exist during recession, when economy is weakest and prices are really cheap.  But who will grab this opportunity, those who saw it before it came.  Those who kept looking for it.
