Opportunities don’t happen, you create them. (Chris Grosser, entrepreneurial businessman)

Most of us have been told time and time again that opportunity knocks only once, so we’d better grab it when we can. Grosser, however, implies that we shouldn’t wait for the knock; it may never rap on our door. Instead, we have to create our own opportunities. In any case, we should always be on the alert to see or create openings for advancement.

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity (Ephesians 5:15-17).
