Most of us wait for the right opportunity to get our dream job. We wait for a ‘wanted’ ad to appear in the newspaper before even planning the next jump in career. Even businessmen wait for information to get the ‘dream’ contract.
This is a big mistake!
Even if our dream job or project is currently not available at present in the market, we can create the opportunity. Chanakya was a great believer in self-effort rather than depending on fate or destiny to shape up situations. He says,
“One trusting in fate, being devoid of human endeavour, perishes, because he does not start undertakings or his undertakings have miscarried (failed)” (7.11.34)
Obviously then, if opportunities don’t knock at our doors, we go to opportunities and knock their doors! Now, how does one do that?
Here are a few tips:
Show your capability, not just by words but by result-oriented actions too. And learn to work with others, for that’s the secret for succeeding in any project.
