101: Let’s Talk About Opportunities

Tim Pecoraro, Opportunities, Going Uphill, Uphill Conversations

In this episode, Tim shares his thoughts on how to be better prepared for the opportunities that come your way! He gives practical tips, insight, and information that will help you welcome and step into these opportunities for your emerging future!

TAKEAWAYS:

“The secret is to be ready when your opportunity comes.” – Benjamin Disraeli

Three observations as it relates to opportunities:

  • Most everyone sees them once they’ve passed by – Hindsight or watching the film of yesterday
  • Many don’t have a picture of it – unaware (“Your big opportunity may be where you are now.” – Napolean Hill)
  • The wrong picture – This is a paradigms problem, what’s in your head and/or your current POV

HOW CAN I HELP PEOPLE DO THE FOLLOWING?:

  • Know there are OPPORTUNITIES out there and all around! This is all about understanding.
    1. You can’t have what you don’t know exists and have access to it
    2. You cannot teach what you do not know
    3. You can’t learn if you cannot be taught
  • Attracting the right kind of opportunity – This is all about your passion and alignment with it. YOUR ‘WHY!’
  • There’s always some assembly required! – Your investment into your growth + development
    1. Make your plans (blueprints)
    2. Putting the pieces together
    3. Possess the willingness to re-draw or go back to the drawing board
    4. Your tools – skills, talents, abilities, relationships, intangibles, and your ability to be self-aware, self-manage, Social-awareness, and relationship management (Emotional Intelligence)
    5. A willingness to discard the unnecessary

Every day prior is the Learning + Training ground for the opportunity to be seen, received, harvested and cultivated.

Here’s another way to look at it:
opportunity > possibility > probability > actuality > factuality > reality (manifestation or physical equivalent)
