1. Understand the basic needs of people.
This helps us understand human nature. And opportunities will never show up outside of human nature. The are opportunities within those needs.
Not everybody will have to get a job. God gave Adam work, not a job! Work engages your talent to bring about a change; it just happens that they give you remuneration.
2. Understand your own skill-set.
God will not send you opportunities that your skill set cannot manage.
What can you do?
If you can’t do it, there will be no opportunities there.
The season of preparation is good, so you can develop your skill set.
This where our faith comes into play. We start developing our skill set before we see the opportunity. We start rising above mediocrity.
God is not a God of mediocrity; He’s a God of excellence.
In anything you’re doing, aspire to be the best.
The world is full of mediocres, so if you can improve yourself a little bit, you’ll get competitive advantage.
3. Look for problems.
Opportunity comes in form of work. Look for problems.
A problem solved is a reward gained. If you’re working in a place, try to solve problems.
Don’t take problems to the executive. You must indicate you can solve the problem.
It is the person who solves problems that is promoted.
4. Listen to unhappy voices.
Many times we don’t like feedback. We feel that feedbacks will be negative, which gives opportunity for people to talk rubbish at us.
In the feedback people give, they are telling you the need.
5. Look for opportunities in your personal disappointments.
Have you been disappointed in life? Buried in those situations are opportunities that God has put in place for your promotion.
Instead of asking, Why me?
Ask, what now?
And as you act on the revelation God is giving you, you’ll move from strength to strength in Jesus name.
You’ll not miss opportunities in Jesus name.
In this season of opportunities you’ll not miss out.
You’ll receive both minor, major, and long-term opportunities.
If you’ve missed opportunities in time past, God will restore the years the canker worm has stolen in Jesus name.
