Opportunities crash land around us all the time. The thing though is that they don’t always make a loud noise and leave a cloud of dust and smoke.
They usually present themselves in small subtle ways. Being able to see and seize them is a special skill one learns over time through trial and error.
You have to be open to them, let people know what you do and what kind of opportunities you looking for. Make yourself available and present in areas where they are most likely to land and you increase your chances of being lucky.
Football players like Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero score’s most of his goals from inside the box, positioning and anticipation is a huge part of his game. Others create opportunities but his most important skill is being able to position himself in areas that those opportunities land.
