What is An Opportunist?


What is an Opportunist?


I absolutely love this quote! Why? because it embodies the spirit of the Opportunist!


How many times in our life have we had the opportunity to seize the moment, and devour that glass of water, while everyone else was looking the other way or otherwise not paying attention!


This is exactly how you need to think to move your business forward, and reach your goals!


What is an Opportunist by definition?


According to an Opportunist is:


[op-er-too-nist, -tyoo-] Show IPA


a person who practices opportunism,  or the policy of adapting actions, decisions, etc., to effectiveness regardless of the sacrifice of ethical principles: He is an extreme opportunist and always thinks the ends justify the means.

How can being an Opportunist help me in my life?


When you are an Opportunist you take advantage of the moment! The definition has a bit of a negative connotation to it, however, I prefer to think of opportunism, a your moment to make the right decision, and make a change for the better. As a business person you have the option to completely change your results by taking advantage of one moment, one small moment of decision has the power to be the ah ha moment!


So if you want to be an opportunist you need to know what moments to seize!


An opportunist seizes moments that will impact them for greatness! Since you are already in a business of some sort, looking to reach your financial goals, helping others along the way, it is vital to find those small moments and take advantage. I cannot tell you what that moment will be, but I do want to hear if you have ever felt the feeling of seizing the moment, and making the most of your opportunity. How did that feel? What was that moment?
