    One motivational speaker consistently possessed this receptive attitude. Before her feet hit the floor each morning, she asks this question. “Lord, what fabulous thing are we going to do today?” With this mindset, she kept a lookout for exceptional things to happen. Most of us are about as aware of things as a traveler who has been riding for three hours straight.

    Often opportunities flash on the screen of our mind for instant as an idea. These ingenious thoughts are fleeting as a leaf floating on a stream. It is there for one moment and gone downstream the next. Be sure to write it down immediately! The successful person is the one who acts on the ideas as a gift from God while the unsuccessful person dismisses them as too much work or insignificant and permits them to slip away.

    On the days we think it is going to be dull and boring, be careful. This is most likely the day we will encounter a life-changing opportunity.
