Success is when preparation and opportunity meet. (Bobby Unser, automobile racer)

We’ve heard it said that opportunity knocks only once, so we’re always to be ready for that “knock.” Agreeing with Unser, Chris Grosser wrote, “Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.” We can’t just hope for a great chance to happen our way, we have to work to create an environment in which we’re always ready to pursue the opportunity we’ve prepared for.

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. (Ephesians 3:15-16)
