April 2nd, 2014

What you do opportunity thumb


“When attracting opportunity to you, one of the most important aspects about that is to tell people what you do and how well you do it. To put on my new media hat as well as my career hat the same time, that’s one reason I encourage people to start blogging, to start using Facebook, to start using Twitter, and so on, because they are perfect avenues to tell people what to do and how well you do it and actively demonstrate it.”

Thomas Edison is quoted as saying “”Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” This is still true today. Work that expands our lives and careers should be sought out and embraced, even if there is a bit of hard work involved. In fact, most opportunities worth pursuing require hard work of some sort. Life doesn’t often give you gold simply for being you. You need to share your knowledge and show your worth and this often means some long hours, if not actual physical labor.
