He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed. – William James
Quite simply, you actually fail* when you don’t act.
And you amplify that failure when you pass over a truly unique and special opportunity.
The key is to be ready for when the really cool stuff comes along.
Get your “stuff” together:
Get your health and energy right.
Get your relationships right.
Get your money right.
Get your (habitual) thoughts right.
Get your emotions right.
Then you’ll be ready.
* Of course, everything yields results/information/wisdom/something, so there is no true failure.
