How are you dealing with the opportunities that come to you?
I wrote down sequentially how wise people treat opportunities.
1. Respond when the opportunity comes vs. not when the opportunity comes.
It’s a very basic story. A wise man is willing to reach out and hold the opportunity when it comes to me.
This story does not mean that every opportunity must be seized. And if it is a case where you have to take risks, of course, the frequency of responding to opportunities will vary depending on a person’s disposition.
However, the “opportunity” referred to in this article does not necessarily mean to talk about the “investment” perspective that may cause losses. Even what he has usually said in words, “I need it,” he makes all kinds of excuses when the opportunity approaches and sends it away or gives it to others. I usually say I should write, diet, or exercise, but I don’t do anything when the opportunity actually unfolds in front of me. Even if there is a seminar announcement or a flyer at a gym in front of you, you just pass by and still repeat “I have to do it” with your mouth. Being passive like this, I don’t look for something more actively.Why don’t you actively search for things you said you needed while looking for restaurant blogs so often?
Wise people are different.
When the opportunity approaches, they boldly seize it, and when they find themselves necessary, they are lazy to explore information on their own, determine whether they need it, and are willing to invest if they find it necessary.
Those who let go of so many opportunities themselves and those who move and grasp numerous opportunities themselves. Even if the grabber fails several of the opportunities he has taken, how will the two change over time? It is obvious that the difference will be stark even if you don’t say it.
2. When you get a chance, you accept it, but you don’t actively participate.
vs. Take the opportunity and actively take advantage of it.
Taking the opportunity does not solve everything. Just as everyone already knows the term “health center donation angel,” just because it started doesn’t mean everyone will succeed. Most people do not actively take advantage of the opportunity even though they respond when it comes. This is where the gap widens even if you take the same class and spend the same money.
Wise people do their best for now about the opportunities they seize. This is because they know based on their past experience that no matter how good an opportunity is, they must try on their own to serve as the foundation for good growth.
Have you linked so many different tips on social media that you have practiced properly? Don’t you think it’s a waste of time that passed by just reading it like a time-pulling book? All the knowledge, tips, and exercise methods that I brought. Did you practice anything properly? Otherwise, let’s take the opportunity that has come and make the best use of the opportunity we have.
3. Learn only “experience” through opportunities vs. produce “results” through opportunities.
This is also an important context. If you don’t do your best, it’s actually hard to get something. However, doing your best does not necessarily mean you can get something. Usually, words that comfort yourself at times like this mean “I had a good experience,” but in fact, this is only a word that makes me feel better mentally, and there is nothing left.
After doing your best for something, you will find that leaving the results will produce actual “results” when you recall the time you have tried later. If you exercise, the activity of building a pretty body and then taking a picture of it makes you feel confident and that you can do it when you decide to go on a diet again later. Recording what you have done is also helpful. In other words, after working hard on something, there must be a ‘result’.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s great or not. You must produce results.
4. That’s the end of what I learned at that opportunity. vs. Use it to help with the next step.
Many people tend to finish whatever they get from any one opportunity with just that. But this is not a good posture. Just as our lives are continuous, taking and achieving opportunities is also a “continuous” thing that is happening in our lives. Therefore, you have someone who can create your own opportunities by thinking about whether you can apply what you have learned or achieved to other fields and practicing applying it in practice.
Not long ago, my trainer, who helps me with my exercise, made me loyal and bought my enemy. At first glance, what will the trainer do after reading the presentation book? It seems meaningless, but I told my trainer that the “last presentation part and the part where I exchange questions” will be quite helpful when consulting with members. In fact, it can be used in other areas, even though it does not seem to have any connection.
In a similar example, lawyer Cho Woo-sung, who wrote a recommendation in my book, said that there has been a tendency to use presentations recently during trials, and that the “slide design” part will be useful for lawyers. At first glance, this also has nothing to do with it, but it can be said that it is a case of being used creatively.
Don’t just use the achievements you’ve earned there.
The achievement is certainly likely to be useful elsewhere.
5. You took everything you could from that opportunity, so you don’t care anymore.
vs. Continue to have a smooth relationship with the person who gave you the opportunity.
In rare cases, opportunities come naturally, but in most cases, there are people who “provide” the opportunity. Ordinary people make the most of this opportunity to achieve what they want and then close the opportunity. Close means that you live like a person who had nothing to do with the people who were involved in the opportunity without any separate contact in the future.
But let’s think about it. People are bound to grow together over time. Anyone who could provide me with something called an “opportunity” is very likely to be growing faster than me or in a position with more than me, even if I grew up with it. In other words, the ‘opportunity’ that can come from this person or organization may not be just once.
Wise people continue to have a smooth relationship with people or organizations that have provided me with opportunities. Send a message on your birthday or add a small sincerity when you have something important. In fact, it is not a very difficult task. And the reason why these people do this is not necessarily to benefit. But who will come to mind first if the same person is in a condition to give another opportunity to others? Are you the one who’s been contacting me and sending me sincerity? Or is it someone who spins around because he got everything?
Being able to continue a smooth relationship with the person who provided the opportunity means that you and the opportunity provider are laying the foundation for growing together. And let’s keep in mind that the more such opportunity providers around me, the more opportunities you can seize for growth.
