On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright comes to you live from his home in Treasure Island, Fla. to talk about the importance of recognizing opportunity. 

What is Opportunity?

"When a set of conditions or circumstances are favorable for you to make a move or take advantage of an offer."

Recognize the Conditions: Stop thinking as a survivor (victim) and start acting as a thriver (chooser). 

Accept as favorable: Stop waiting on a sign (the perfect storm) and start being your own miracle (take initiative).

Move on the advantage: Stop thinking that something should happen (wish as a strategy) and start acting on what is happening (realism as a strategy).

Four Reasons Why People Don't Recognize Opportunity:

1. Letting your past haunt your present

2. Ignoring the potential of the present

3. Using your willpower to manage stress

4. Not able to focus on the future

1. Letting Your Past Haunt Your Present Antidote Quote:

"Great moments are born with great opportunity." -- Herb Brooks

Moral: Start letting your future be bigger than your present. But in order to embrace that future, one must let go of the past by utilizing the power of urgency which exists in the moment.

2. Ignoring The Potential Of The Present Antidote Quote:

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." --Thomas Edison

Moral: People can't see the present as an opportunity because they only view it as a day separating yesterday from tomorrow. Seeing today as an opportunity requires one to stop reminiscing about the past, and stop fantasizing about the future. Instead, people need to start working with an intentional focus about the 24 hours called the present. Fearing today is only a reason to not work.

3. Using Your Willingness To Manage Stress Antidote Quote:

"Luck is when opportunity meets preparedness." --Roman Philosopher Seneca

Moral: It is important to stop using all your willpower to manage stress, but rather, saving most of it to use for maintaining your discipline. Luck doesn't happen when you are waiting around on opportunity to show up, but instead, it appears after you have prepared for its arrival. This preparedness comes from the great discipline to master the mundane. Implementing this as a routine, puts you in a position to take advantage of opportunity.

4. Not Able To Focus On The Future

Antidote Quote: "We are all faced with great opportunity disguised as impossible situations." --John W. Gardner

Moral: Stop waiting for opportunity to Feel right. Instead, let your Do control your discipline. Doing your way into a feel requires more will than confidence. Every situation doesn't have to feel doable, but rather, every situation should be viewed as being doable.

Two Things Happen When You Miss The Opportunity

1. Doubt sets in and the lack of confidence from your uncertainty causes you to ask:

  • Why bother? ----> Code for: Life IS Tough.

  • How can I trust again? ----> Code for: People ARE Cruel.

  • Who am I fooling? ----> Code for: I AM Depressed.

2. Procrastination becomes the norm and your excuse for lack of initiative causes you to say:

  • If I wasn't so tired ----> Code for: I have no energy

  • But I'm not ready ----> Code for: I hav no purpose

  • When I find the time ----> Code for I have no belief
