Truth is, what most call luck is really most often the intersection of opportunity with preparation. Inadequate preparation? Luck goes on to knock at another’s door. Always be prepared for opportunity rarely makes appointments. Cultivate a ravenous curiosity, nurture a lust for learning. As Ben Franklin said, pour your pocketbook into your head (invest in your education) for knowledge is a treasure that can never be taken away.
“Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.” – Dr. Robert Schuller
“I’m a big believer in the fact that life is about preparation, preparation, preparation.” – Johnnie Cochran
“If you prepare yourself at every point as well as you can—you will be able to grasp the opportunity for broader experience when it appears.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“Success is never an accident; it’s always the result of a plan. They say chance favors the prepared, so get prepared and stay ready so that you don’t have to get ready later on when it is too late.” – Tony Gaskins
As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
