The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself.
It is not in your environment;
It is not in luck or chance,
Or the help of others;
It is in yourself alone.
Greater men have had no royal routes
To achieve their triumphs.
It is always the same old route;
By the way of industry and perseverance.
Opportunities? They are all around us…
There is power lying latent everywhere
Waiting for the observant eye to discover it.
All who have accomplished great things
Have had a great aim,
Have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high,
One which sometimes seemed impossible.
Deep within man dwells those slumbering powers;
Powers that would astonish him,
That he never dreamed of possessing;
Forces that would revolutionize his life
If aroused and put into action.
Orison Swett Marden
