stands for “Never-as in “Never Giving Up!” By making, a daily mantra of “I will never give up” means there is not a minute, an hour, or a month that you are not seeking out new opportunities. New opportunities are the only way to completely come out of a setback. The only way to find new opportunities is give it all you have every day!
stands for “Opportunistic”. Before you see that word and think “I have to chase down every opportunity that comes my way”,-wait. Have the spirit of being opportunistic but make sure it’s the right fit for you. By going out of the box and chasing after something “just because” is not the smart way to do it. Instead, figure out your niche and be opportunistic within that realm. By being patient and not settling, you will find out it pays off in the long road.
stands for “Weigh-as in Weigh it all out” When you do find those opportunities that fit your niche, do not jump in right away. If time permits, make a list of pros and cons and see if this opportunity is truly right for you. Sometimes people are so excited about that first job opportunity that they do not weigh out the pros and cons. Six months later after the “Newlywed” feeling wears off, they find they are regretting their decision.
So that’s it…last week I gave the A.B.C’s of how to deal with setbacks and this week I showed you how N.O.W. will help you seek out new opportunities.
