Leadership Minute: The Face of Opportunity

opp

Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. – Napoleon Hill

The road to success can be long and bumpy. It can be littered with setbacks, disappointments, failure, and frustration. But as you study the successes of the most recognizable names in history you will discover that the above descriptions are all part of the formula. The problem arises when we want success without sacrifice, profits without some momentary pain, and recognition without some obscurity. Many want the benefits of success without having to take the road of hard knocks to get there. But if you are willing to pay the price, work hard, endure some misfortune and some defeats, you can come to a place where success is no longer a dream but a reality. Don’t be afraid to dream big dreams and make bold plans, but be willing to pay the price to achieve them.
