Welcome to #KingsUncommonWisdom! Many years ago, we used to say that opportunity comes but once. But I discovered that opportunities pay us special visit every minute. It’s just that we are not always ready to maximize them.
It is estimated that each human being on earth generate between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day. That is between 41.6 to 55.5 thoughts per minute! Each of those thoughts are opportunities to change your life forever. Unfortunately, we don’t pay attention to them.
Opportunities are divinely orchestrated circumstances that are designed to make you rich. Opportunities are wealth that looks like hard work. While you’re reading this article, opportunities are begging for your attention. Sitting beside someone is an opportunity you may never have the rest of your life. That’s why I encourage people to socialize whenever they meet strangers. To maximize opportunities, you must do the following:
1. Prepare For Opportunities.
One of the easiest ways to prepare for opportunities is to consistently develop yourself. For example, if you’re invited to become the governor of your state right now, do you have what it takes to occupy that exalted position? Do you know anything about leadership? Do you know how to relate with people and get the best from them? Can you prepare a budget? Do you have any idea about economics?
Many prayers will remain unanswered because we are not ready for the answers. I’m sure you prayed for uncommon breakthrough this year, the question is; do you have what it takes to manage the breakthrough? I’m sure someone prayed for divine promotion this year, but do you have what it takes to occupy the position you’re praying for?
You must first equip yourself before you pray for marriage. You must learn how to live with a complete stranger the rest of your life. Any lady that is desperate to get married must develop herself so that she will become an asset to her husband. A man that wants to marry by all means should also develop himself so that he will not become a terror to the lady when she shows up.
God showed Joseph his future through dream, but allowed him to go through thirteen tortuous years to get him prepared. Joseph went through the Pit, then to Potiphar’s house, then he entered into trouble with Potiphar’s wife which landed him to the Prison, and from there he went to the Palace, and became a Prime minister! I said in my books, Fulfilling Your Destiny and The Untapped Treasures that all the problems of Joseph came with letter “P.” Those problems prepared him for the opportunity to become a Prime minister.
God will always bring opportunities your way, but it is left for you to maximize them. Preparation is the pathway to the top. If you fail to prepare for opportunity you will not even know when it shows up. So while you’re praying for prosperity, you should go back to school or visit www.kingsuncommonwisdom.com and sign up for the various training opportunities we designed to help you. Just scroll up, and grab the opportunity right now.
2. Recognize Opportunities.
I heard the story of a man who saw a piece of artwork on the street and bought it for $2.77 cents. He took it home and wondered what to do with it. He called the museum and they told him to bring the artwork. He went to the museum and returned home with a cheque of $11 million! What happened? The owner of the artwork did not recognize the value of what he had, and he sold it for $2.77 cents.
Many people are sitting on treasures but they do not know the value. Some people are chatting with their destiny helpers somewhere right now, but they do not know. Someone is presently quarreling and fighting with the ladder God positioned to take him to the next level right now because he failed to recognize it. Some ladies practically chased away their potential husbands because they did not show up with exotic cars. Some men equally chased away their God-ordained wives because they were not externally beautiful.
I will advise that you stop insulting everybody you see just because they look ordinary. Some of them might be your destiny helpers. Some people have gone for interview and discovered that the person they insulted on the social media is the owner of the place. Stop looking down on people.
I discovered many years ago that destiny helpers usually don’t look like it. You may meet some of them at a ceremony, gas station or even on the road. You will definitely meet you destiny helpers if you treat people with respect.
Those people you think are irrelevant when you visit a wealthy individual influence some of his decisions. A particular President of the United States of America usually meet janitors and servants at the White House after an important meeting to know their views about what was discussed. They said that he made important decisions with the informations he gathered from them. So stop looking down on people, you may need them tomorrow.
Develop an inquisitive mind. Learn to keep probing on something until it makes sense. Those who are always in a hurry will definitely miss great opportunities. Whenever you see something that attracts your attention don’t be in a hurry to go. Sit down and take a critical look at it. You may be looking at a treasure that will change your story forever.
3. Take Advantage of Opportunities.
The moment you discover that a thought, an idea or a proposal is an opportunity, don’t wait for too long. Take action immediately. Look for ways to maximize it. I just finished writing a new book (Wonders of Faith) because I took action the moment I received the inspiration. I did not wait to see whether it was the right time to write the book or not, I started writing immediately. Before I know what was happening, the book was ready!
Stop waiting for the coast to clear. Please, clear the coast and maximize the opportunity. I discovered that enthusiasm and energy usually accompany ideas. If you delay, the enthusiasm and energy will dissipate. If you keep waiting for the right condition, you will never succeed in life. Take action right now!

John F. Kennedy said, “The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger- but recognize the opportunity.” Milton Berle opined, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” Roy T. Bennett equally said, “When things do not go your way, remember that every challenge- every adversity- contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.” Wisdom is profitable to direct.
