Do you make your own luck?
I am firm believing that you make your own luck and the harder you work, the luckier you get!
Over the last three years, I have worked very hard to build relationships and made opportunities for myself. Along the way, I have helped businesses, events, communities and people in different ways. These have developed my skills and they have benefited by my skills being used on their projects.
3 things that wouldn’t of have happened if I did not say yes!
- Wouldn’t have started doing social media for different events.
- Wouldn’t have got a show on Radio Warwickshire and in turn, a successful podcast on iTunes and on other platforms.
- Wouldn’t have started a business as I wouldn’t have started coaching and training people.
In essence, my life would have been so different and the list doesn’t stop there. It expands to speaking, hosting events, developing websites, newsletters and blogging skills, networking and better communication skills and so much more.
I have now learnt that opportunities are all around us. You need to be keen to spot them and see them for not just it is at that moment in time, but what it could lead you to do.
If you take anything away from this, please take this:
If it scares you, DO IT!!
If it is going to develop a new skill, DO IT!!
If you are in two minds but the opportunity might not come around again, DO IT!!
Over the next year, I will be able to give more and more people opportunities that will scare, challenge or (quite frankly) freak them out. When I come knocking on your door with something, I am hoping you remember this and say yes!!
Trust me, the more you do that is outside your comfort zone, the bigger the comfort zone gets and the more opportunities will come your way.
