The Key to Getting More Opportunities

The Key to Getting More Opportunities


I was talking with a guy recently who told me his grand dreams of going to China. I listened for a while and then asked him a question.

“Do you have a passport?”

“Uh… No. I plan to get one one day.” The question seemed to completely confuse him.

His response was baffling to me because there’s one thing I learned early on in life:

Opportunities come to those who are prepared.

I think people often believe that the ones who have amazing opportunities presented to them just have good luck. I don’t believe it’s a matter of luck. Most of the time people get the adventure they are prepared for. They expect that good things are going to happen, so they get prepared for them.

I walk around with sense of divine expectancy. I’m certain God is going to present amazing opportunities, so I do everything within my power to make sure I’m ready to seize them as they arise.

If you really want to go to China – get a passport! Now! You ain’t goin’ nowhere without it. Do your part, then get ready for God to present the opportunity. Learn the language. Get the education. Read the books about the topic. Prepare!

Extraordinary people make sure they are always prepared for that moment when God opens the door that will lead them into a place they always dreamed of.

Get ready for what God has ahead by preparing yourself right now.

…no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Cor. 2:9
