I took a break from shooting food and beverage items today to have some photo fun with my youngest son. He recently passed his swimming class with flying colors so he put on his goggles and briefly posed for a few shots.
I think after the first 20 shots he was getting a bit overwhelmed with the lights flashing all the time so he put his hand up to block the glare. Sometimes you just get lucky and hit the shutter button at the right time.
How many times have you been at the right place at the right time and were able to take advantage of an opportunity? I still remember the Boy Scout motto from years ago. Be Prepared. But be prepared for what? I say be prepared for anything and everything.
Sometimes opportunity comes knocking and we are unprepared or don’t recognize it. Maybe we are not at a stage in our life where we can allow ourselves to recognize it or maybe we are just too caught up in the distractions of life that we just don’t see it. Maybe we are burdened down with consumerism and debt and not able to take full advantage of an opportunity. Are you putting yourself out there to create opportunities?
How are you positioning yourself to be able to take advantage of opportunities?
