5. Don't Wait to Be Invited
Create Opportunities and Get in the Game
Remember, true opportunity never knocks. I have found that I have to go looking for opportunity – and if I don’t find it, I have to create it.
You don't receive respect, you earn it and you aren't given opportunity, you fight for it.
The message of the summoned life is that you donít need to panic if you donít yet know what you want to do with your life. But you probably want to throw yourselves into circumstances where the summons will come.
Life will happen to you, whether you try to guide it or not, so you might as well try to influence the outcome. You have to know what you want and you have to be willing to go after it!
Take action. Every story you've ever connected with, every leader you've ever admired, every puny little thing that you've ever accomplished is the result of taking action. You have a choice. You can either be a passive victim of circumstance or you can be the active hero of your own life.
We might have the right intentions, but instead of acting, we decide to wait.. We keep waiting until we run out of ďuntils.Ē Then it is too late.
