Seize opportunities

Achieve continuous improvement by grasping opportunities!

possibilitiesHave you missed opportunities because you were not aware of them? It takes courage to defy the fear of doing something new or introduce a change, but by focusing on what you can accomplish it is easier to overcome fear. By thinking through what you have to fear or lose, you will often find that the fear is groundless.

You have to switch OFF your autopilot, which says NO to what you do not know enough about, causing missed opportunities. Instead, ask question and be curious! Once you have enough information, it is easier to make a correct choice.

By becoming more aware, it is easier to discover opportunities that you have not been aware of previously. Implementing improvements is about challenging established truths, to introduce new habits and to ask questions. It requires increased awareness and courage to make changes. What new opportunities will you use today? Which good questions will you ask yourself?

I have surely missed many opportunities that I have overlooked, or being stopped by fear of the unknown. However, I have also managed to overcome fear and sought opportunities. One thing is for sure: I have never regret seizing an opportunity!
