Opportunity Meets Preparation-Tokunbo Fasoro

OPPORTUNITY MEETS PREPARATION

I was in the states and I was chatting with a young man who had just lost a big opportunity. Immediately after high school, he got a job. He was lucky to have gotten that job, because for a high school graduate, it was a very good one.

For nine years, he worked diligently, and had gotten himself a decent house, car and a comfortable life. He looked forward to the day he would be promoted to finally head the department where he worked. Unfortunately, a new policy was sent out stating that only college graduates were eligible to apply for that position. He did not have a degree, and as a result, he lost out.

He learned a very big lesson that day, that “opportunity waits for no one.” After this incidence, he enrolled for a four-year college degree and was ready to work hard and earn the qualifications that would take him to the next level. If he had done this earlier, he would have been saved time, and gained a promotion.

Preparation is key. In life, you need to be ready always, because you never know when or in what manner an opportunity could come. Don’t wait for an opportunity before you make the preparation that are required, because once an opportunity comes and you are not ready, it wouldn’t wait for you; it moves right to the next person who is ready. Preparation may be an exam, a certification, some sort of training, a registration or even take a trip on an important matter and you have been procrastinating. Please Take action immediately because “Opportunity meets only Preparation!”
