Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines fortuitous as: happening by chance; having or showing good luck.
Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity. – Oprah Winfrey
How prepared are we for the opportunities we want to experience?
One person I know has a wonderful idea for what she wants to create and yet it seems to allude her. Turns out she has yet to put together any plans or proposals for the services and programs she wants to provide.
It might seem like a daunting task and yet if we break something that big down into doable daily pieces, we can be prepared for that opportunity in very short order. And then when we “happen to meet someone” who asks us if we do “___________” (whatever it is we do), our reply can then be, “why yes I do. Here are my offerings.”
Whatever our dreams may be, we can be fortuitous by being prepared and making our own luck. Check in each day to ask: What one small thing can I do today to make my dream(s) come true.
