When Opportunities Strikes
Today on my video blog, I talked about a story in which myself and another physical therapist got the same opportunities to work with top-level professional tennis players and I took it and he didn’t. He felt like it was just too inconvenient to work after normal work hours. Looking at it earning extra for hours that you can spent outside of your working hours can take its toll on yourself and your family. On the other hand, having another source of income is always a good thing and will pay-off sooner than you think.
Because I took that opportunity, my career took a completely different path than his.
He’s had five different jobs. During the time that this one opportunity came, this lead led me to start my business and grow it to what it is today. It was one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far.
If there’s one thing I can tell you, it is that you need to have a sense of urgency in anything that’s really important to you. You will have to learn how to manage time for work and and your family.
Whether that’s your career, or maybe even building a solid relationship with your spouse, or your children. There is no guarantee that the same opportunity is going to open itself up to you. Your kids might want to speak to you today, but five years from now when they get older, if you don’t invest in them from now… They might not want to have anything to do with you. Of the things that actually mean something to you, take advantage of every opportunity that you have and make the most out of it. You will never know what these opportunities will bring into your life unless you grab it.
