If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
Throughout life we are often presented with many wonderful opportunities whether they be in our professional life or personal life, and when these opportunities arise, it’s always a blessing. Sometimes however, rather than relying on different opportunities to present themselves to us, we have to make our own luck and put ourselves out there to make things happen. If you want something chase it.
If you wait for an opportunity to present itself to you, you could be waiting forever and it doesn’t have to be that way. Create your own opportunities and build your own doors.
A great example of someone who has built their own doors is Tanya Burr. Back in 2015 Tanya Burr revealed her first ever Glamour cover to the world and in the editors note of the magazine it was noted that Tanya herself had actually asked to be featured in the magazine. She went after what she wanted, took matters into her own hands and respectively got what she wanted!
Tanya didn’t wait around and hope that the chance to be featured in Glamour magazine would fall into her lap, she created her own opportunity by putting herself out there and asking for the feature.
What an inspiration, Tanya, you go girl!
Tanya’s story could also relate to the quotes ‘no risks, no rewards’, and ‘if you don’t ask, you don’t get’. Pretty self explanatory really but definitely motto’s I aim to follow. Taking risks can be scary but if you don’t ever step out of your comfort zone, you may never know what you could be missing and if you don’t ever ask for something, then the answer will always be no plain and simple.
If you really want something, its up to you to go out there and get it. Forget waiting for luck to fall on your side, forget ‘lucky breaks’, make things happen for yourself. Create your own luck. Build your own doors.
Work hard, take risks, step out of your comfort zone, ask for what you want.
Take those dreams and make them all come true…
