The Bible says, "Don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries".

We always worry about what we will eat tomorrow, what we will drink tomorrow.

So we try to save up for tomorrow instead of using what we have for today.

This is not the only thing we do. We also leave tasks and actions for tomorrow.

How many times did you have an urge to do something now?

And then you'll say to yourself, I will do it tomorrow.

And then you may do it tomorrow or you may never do it, but...

Have you ever considered that even if you do it tomorrow it may be too late?

Have you ever considered that if you had done that thing yesterday it may have had a different impact then it may have tomorrow?

You may get the urge to talk to someone about buying your product today and you may have made a sale. That may have been the time when that person was receptive to your message. When you go tomorrow that person may still listen to you, but he may decline your offer.

The following points will bring this home better.

I don't know about you but sometimes purchasing an item may depend on my mood, even if it's something that I really like. If I don't buy it now, I may never buy it even if I see it again next week.

Here is something interesting that I picked up while watching CNN.

They did a study that focused on the receptiveness of women throughout their monthly cycle. What they found is that a woman may accept or reject a particular man depending on what time of the month he approaches her. She may turn him down now, but if he had approached her two weeks down the line she may have said yes.

If a study was to be done on men, they may find similar patterns.

So as you can see, it is very important that when you feel the urge to do something, you should just do it.

If you had written and send that article or manuscript yesterday when you got the urge, it may have caught the eye of the publisher who was browsing a particular article website.

So even though you're sending it tomorrow, it may be too late as this person is long gone, and may never visit that website again.

That is how we keep on shooting ourselves in the foot and lose our opportunities, and then we say there are no opportunities.

Let me share with you one very powerful secret.

There are hundreds of thousands of opportunities all around you every day. Some see it and grab it and we call them lucky.

Others don't take advantage of it because they either, don't see it or they are not ready to take advantage of it, when it comes.

My definition of luck is this:

"Luck happens when opportunity collides with readiness"

If you're not ready you can never take advantage of opportunities, even if you see it.

Let me give you an example. Let us say, I never went to College even though I had opportunities to do so. However my friend did and has a degree. We may see an advertisement in the paper seeking someone who speaks Spanish and has a degree. Both of us may speak Spanish but only my friend will be ready and may get the job.

Here is another example:
Let's say you are at the harbor and a cruise ship arrives and they are looking for people to work on the cruise ship. Both of you can do the job offered but you can't get a job because you don't have a passport; however your friend has a passport and gets a job. You never applied for a passport because you didn't think it may have been necessary to get a job.

So here is my advice.

Whatever you can do or have to do, do it now and do it well. You don't know who is watching or where it may take you.
