“Don’t wait around for opportunity to knock on your door because that only happens in fairy tales. Waiting around for the right opportunity to come knocking is like standing in the middle of a cricket field with your hands cupped together, waiting to catch the ball. It just doesn’t happen! Opportunity doesn’t knock on doors; it hides behind them. So push open a few doors and see what happens. You can always close them again if you don’t like what you find.”
