Opportunities are everywhere. Identifying and going for them seem to be the challenge for some persons. However, one has to be ready for opportunities when they eventually show up.
The following are tips for grabbing opportunities that could change your life
There’s a saying which goes ”opportunity comes but once”. I do not totally agree with that as there are opportunities everywhere. Your ability to identify the opportunities is what determines your next step. Look around for them.
Go for opportunities
Another tip is seizing the opportunities and going for them. It’s one thing to be able to identify opportunities and another to go for them. Leave your comfort zone and go for those opportunities. They will never come looking for you. Refuse to be too shy or fearful and do the needful. It may require you leaving your parents and your home, resigning a particular job or even spending extra money. If you stay where is comfortable, you may never grow as you could be too comfortable to explore.
Meet as many people as possible and build all the possible contacts. Develop a healthy relationship because you never know who could be of help amongst them. Go out, meet new people and land in new opportunities, go for trainings and seminars. Opportunities and rewards will not just fall into your lap.

You also need to keep working on yourself, profile and skills. You should not be taken unawares when the opportunity eventually shows up. Prepare before the opportunity comes not when it arrives and then you are left with not knowing what to do and how to utilise it. Self development is necessary both in your field and other fields. You can do a weekly, monthly or quarterly assessment to see the areas you are improving or needs to improve.
Show your worth
Be proud of what you can do and display it whenever possible. If you can write, cook, make videos or anything at all. Share them and let people appreciate them. You never know where an opportunity can arise from.
Appreciate others who are excelling in related fields. Remember when you make others feel good, somehow it robs off on you too. Compliment their efforts and you will be surprised that they would want to return such gesture by throwing a good opportunity at you. However, ensure that the compliment is not done out of the intention of getting favours. It should be genuine.
