Opportunity Doesn’t knock twice? How true?

It’s through curiosity and looking at opportunities in new ways that we’ve always mapped our path.”Michael Dell

Most of us are way too familiar with the phrase above, some of us do a little more than just being familiar if we must admit. We are shaped, groomed and somehow led to believe this phrase strongly. While this might coincidentally look true and factual but it is not always the case in many ways though they are exceptional cases in which they’re.


A great man once said, “Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell”. It is true that opportunities don’t come to us every day. After working hard, we may be entitled to an opportunity. But one has to be aware of opportunities that may come his/her way. Today, many people are too involved in their own work that they miss many opportunities. 

Opportunities to take a breath of fresh air
To seal that deal
To share a bottle or two with friends 
To allow love happen
To unwind
To share happy blissful memories with family etc


It is very important we don’t miss out on opportunities and it is even more important that we know, we can create opportunities as well as also have more opportunities in future, but we ought to be certain we are not careless and myopic to the ones we have today. 

Let’s learn to let the magic In, as we optimize every opportunity that life introduces to us, we both hands.
