Opportunity does not knock.
Opportunity drifts past you on a stormy sea. If you want it, you must dive in and swim for it. You will lose sight of it as you are tossed about by the waves, but you must persevere. You will struggle in currents that work sometimes for you, often against you. And once you grasp that opportunity, you must be prepared for it to drag you down before it lifts you up. You will carry its weight in the water long before your opportunity helps you float above it. But when it does, you’ll ride the wind and waves.
