I had someone call me the other day and they said, “Someone came to me with this opportunity and I don’t know if I should even talk to them.” Why wouldn’t you talk to them? (Agitated) “Well then I – it’s too much and my boss…” I’m not saying you have to take the opportunity. All I am saying is you need to talk to them. And once we got to that standpoint in their mind — I’m not deciding anything. I’m not leaping off the boat. I’m just talking to people. We should all be doing that. If an opportunity walks in that door — talk to it. Don’t slam the door in its face and I see people do that all the time. Opportunity shows up and, of course, again, just like transition, what;s our first response to opportunity? (Screaming) Ahhhhhhhhhh. It’s scary. It’s frightening. I want to run in the other direction, because it’s too good. It’s too interesting. It’s too much possibility there for us to deal with. Don’t do it. You’re turning away opportunities at the door. not every opportunity is going to result in something. Not every opportunity is even going to be something you want to take advantage of. Talk to it. See what its about. .
