“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce

According to Merriam-Webster, opportunity is a favorable juncture of circumstances or a good chance of advancement or progress. Some otherimages words for an opportunity are a big break, a chance, or a shot.

It is a fact that the more people you get to know, the more opportunities you will be presented with. This year why not spend more time with friends, do some online or in person networking, or attend local events? I know that there are some opportunities that I am wishing would come my way, but if they do will I be too afraid to take advantage of them?

Come this New Year’s Day, how will YOU handle the opportunities that are being presented to you?
