“The secret of success in life is to be ready for the opportunity when it arises.” – Robert Hasse
What does a high jump athlete? Competitions? Wrong! He does is “preparation” for years and years, every day, for many hours per day, so when the moment comes, those few seconds, the entire effort, sacrifice, pain, and determination comes up and pushes him up each millimeter, just enough to overcome the bar.
What makes a person successful? Studying, learning, contact with the best, training, and lives focused every day. Thus, when the opportunity arises he already has his preparation.
The others, who spent their days minding their business and not bothering with training say: “He was very lucky.”
