“…the people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.” George Bernard Shaw

Have you ever been frustrated because the course of you life seems off track.?  Do you feel as if you are “locked” into a bad situation or you are on a endless treadmill that is taking you nowhere? Well, then it’s time to take those circumstances and turn them into opportunities.

If you think that you don’t have enough education or knowledge surrounding a topic – take time to learn it!  Whether it be acquiring a degree or certification or taking your current skills and education and applying that to your area of interest – find the opportunity to apply your talents and skills.

If you wonder why something that is obvious to you is not being done –  find out why!  Ask questions,  network with people who are already in the industry and benefit from their expertise.

If you  find that your suggestions or ideas are falling on deaf ears, that you know there is a market for a new idea, concept or service  – pitch it!  Do it first in brief written form, this will help you organize your ideas,  connect with a person, face-to-face and ask them if they would take some time with you to review the idea or concept.  Ask them what they think about the idea and then ask for  recommendations.

We all too often become “victims” of circumstances, allowing ourselves not to be listened to or believed in.  Don’t treat life like toss of the dice. Take take your talents and  techniques, your skills and strategies, your courage and commitment and get out there to make  circumstances stepping stones and opportunities a reality!
