It always seems that some people are handed the best opportunities. They’re always in the right place at the right time. But these opportunity-magnets aren’t just lucky – they’re resourceful. Rarely are great opportunities hand delivered to the most qualified individual. Instead, they’re given to the people willing to go out, spread their name and expertise, and make sure they’re not forgotten. The entrepreneurs that are always in the right place at the right time are there because they put themselves there. If you’re ready to start attracting your own opportunities, here are 6 habits you can adapt that can help be in the right place at the right time:
1. Know where to look
Most opportunities are often overlooked because they don’t jump right out at you. So, you’ll need to start looking. Pay attention to every person, business, and environment you come in contact with and train your brain to listen or look for problems you can help with. When you help to identify the problem, you will be the first one they think of when they’re ready to solve it.
2. Understand the importance of every project
As an entrepreneur, you’re going to be handed a lot of projects you don’t care to do. Do them anyway, and with the same commitment and dedication you would any other project. Every project plays into another project. Your little, non-exciting piece is crucial to completing the entire picture. When you work with heart and dedication in everything you do, you’ll be remembered when bigger, better projects come around.
3. Control your image
Your image is everything. From the way you dress to the information you put on social media, you are creating a personal image unique to you. But, that personal image is open for judgment. The entrepreneurs that are given the best opportunities are the ones who take control over their image, understand what clients want to see, and craft a look that fits their needs.
4. Find the opportunities in everything
Once you understand where to look, find the opportunities in everything. Every process, project, or problem has a way to be refined – find it, and make it yours. When you can find a way to make your set of skills solve problems in different areas and variety of industries, you’ll never run out of opportunities.
5. Dominate your niche
Becoming the go-to source is crucial to being the number one resource in solving a problem. Grab every opportunity in your industry and develop a portfolio of projects in the area you want to be in. Share your desire for a particular industry with everyone. Eventually your name will become synonymous with your industry. When this happens, all opportunities in that area will find their way to you.
6. Analyze every opportunity for the right fit
There will be times when you’re given an opportunity that doesn’t make sense for you. In this situation, you’ll have two options: let it pass by or find a way to make it fit. Successful entrepreneurs take every opportunity they are given, even if they aren’t an exact match. Finding how your skills can be applied in unexpected ways allow you to grow. Do the extra work to make it fit. Getting the best opportunities have nothing to do with luck. If you want to be the entrepreneur with every opportunity coming your way, put yourself right there, ready to take them as they come. Adapting these habits can help you become the opportunity magnet you hope to be.
