Suddenly there appeared to be a crowd, several thousand professionals all in a small area.
I continued to read my book, finding a spot in the corner, flicking through the pages spending the next couple of hours in conversation with the author. My friend, an entrepreneur, saw an opportunity in this new found crowd and chose to network.
At the end of the day, he had made some 71 contacts whom he had exchanged business cards with.
Here is a guy who made the most of a given situation, to network, get to know people and look for any and every angle he can to continually expand on his business.
Here is the kicker.
This was in Dubai at around 4pm when the tremors of a neighbouring countries’ earth quake had professionals evacuate from their buildings and spill on to the street.
When most people (including myself) merely saw a crowd, he saw an opportunity.
Opportunities are everywhere.
Just take a moment and ask yourself, where are the opportunities in your life? Have you got your eyes open for them? And if you do, what are you willing to do about it?
When opportunities come, you take it. Even better, you make it.
You have to
a) choose to see it
b) be willing to put in the effort.
Until we meet in person,
Get Inspired, Get Informed & Get Going!!!
