Looks Like Work

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work. ” – Thomas Edison

A lot like workI’m a firm believer in that we can create opportunities for ourselves everyday — and when it comes to what we do for a living, it is extremely important that we continue to create opportunities everyday.  But here’s the obvious, but hidden problem.  It’s work.  It’s gonna be work.  It may not be rosy and pleasant from the get- go, but it you a better career, the work will be worth it.  Just think about what others do for a living — a garbage man, for instance — and ask yourself, if that wasn’t your dream job, what would you start doing to get to your dream job?  What would be your first step?  Changing careers?  Going back to school?  Getting special training?  Effort is required to build or have anything (of value).  Another word for effort: work.  You want something better?  Work for it.
