The Opportunity of a Lifetime

Here is a short post from my other blog site on “opportunity”. I think it will help you all in adapting a better perspective the next time an opportunity comes around. Enjoy…



Most men would agree that great opportunities are a rare thing. They have the perception that when opportunity knocks we had better answer. We had better respond. We better be ready. They believe it could be “the opportunity of a lifetime”. And while I do believe there is value in a continual preparing of our hearts and minds and life so that we can be better prepared to take advantages of opportunities, I would like to present to you what I have learned about opportunities.

“Don’t Touch that Manna”

Real estate is a 24/7 business, right? This is what the instructor taught at a recent continuing education course I attended. “You had better have your phone on you at all times and be ready to set that next appointment. When that offer comes in at 8:30 PM, you had better be ready to negotiate. When that client is only available to meet on Sunday or they have told you they will find another agent…you had better be available! This is what successful agents do!” Isn’t this what you’ve been told? Working evenings and weekends is just part of the job description.
