Success happens when Preparation meets opportunity
For Today's Wednesday Wisdom we have a simple saying that is easy to understand but takes dedication and commitment to make a reality. "Success Happens when Preparation Meets Opportunity".
So what does this mean for you? It means if you want to be successful, and by successful we mean creating the world you want to live in through your chosen profession, you have to be prepared. And one of the central keys to success is being a world class communicator.
This is why here at Heroic Voice we always talk about taking the time to "get in the gym". You have to choose every day to practice at being a world class communicator, build your communication muscles and stamina. This preparation on a consistent ongoing basis is important because it is the part of the right side of the success equation we have control over.
We do not have control over when an opportunity happens. Opportunity could take the form of the person you strike up a conversation with at the coffee shop, or that person at the gym who knows the perfect partner for your business, or that connection on linkedIn that you didn't expect. You will only be prepared to take advantage of these opportunities when they arise if you have been hitting the gym on a regular basis and been preparing your communication skills.
So get in the Gym, today, and every day, to build your presentation and communication skills.
