Opportunity – A Lesson from David and Goliath

The topic for this Golden Nugget is “Opportunity”, and this is part 1 of 5, and to begin with, I’m gonna go back to the story of David and Goliath. You see, most people viewed Goliath as a big problem, but David viewed Goliath as a big opportunity, and this is simply something that winners do. Losers see big problems, while winners see big opportunities. In other words, losers consider life to be full of big problems, while winners consider life to be full of big opportunities. A loser would look at Goliath and think, “He’s so big, he’ll probably kill me!” David looked at Goliath and thought, “He’s too big of a target to miss!” Yes, if you believe it will work out, whatever it is that you’re facing, then you’ll see an opportunity, but if you don’t believe it will work out, then you’ll only see obstacles. It’s been said that most people are only presented with two or three really big opportunities in their lifetime. When they present themselves, will you be ready? Benjamin Disraeli said, “The secret of success is to be ready when your opportunity comes.” And John Wooden said, “When opportunity presents itself, it’s too late to prepare.” Oh, and when does present itself? I’ve heard it said that the train doesn’t stop very long at Opportunity Station. Therefore, prepare now, so that when opportunity presents itself, you’ll be prepared! By the way, one of the ways you can prepare for opportunities that haven’t yet presented themselves is by working on personal growth and development. And watching and/or listening to these Golden Nuggets each weekday is a great way to work on personal growth and development. These Golden Nuggets are less than four minutes long, and they’re full of good ideas and concepts that can help you grow in wisdom, and ultimately, they can help you become more successful than you otherwise might’ve been. I spend a lot of time on these and I give them away and I’d like to ask you to do me a favor. If you enjoy these, tell someone else about them. I invest a lot of time and money on each Golden Nugget, and it doesn’t cost me any extra money or time if additional people watch and/or listen to them. So partner with me and help me to make a positive difference in the lives of others. After all, winners seek to add value to others, and you are a winner and given enough time, you WILL win! Yes, you ARE a winner!
