“Good things come to those who wait,” is an age-old adage people hear. However, this quote is completely misleading and inaccurately used, because it is unfinished. The full quote reads: “Good things come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but usually only those who hustle, tend to take all of those “good things”.
Many of us have been misled by this notion that being patient is enough, but it isn’t. Opportunities are everywhere, and the fruits of these opportunities are rarely taken by patient people. They are taken by those who will pounce at every opportunity they possibly can. Those who merely wait get only what is left. So next time you see an opportunity to grow and better yourself in some way, don’t patiently wait! Capitalize!
As a black belt in Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu, I have learned time and time again, great opportunities require immediate action. No great opportunity is going to wait for you; seize and leverage it, because it won’t be there for long.
Now, having been informed of the urgency of acting swiftly on great opportunities, I challenge you to come in and try out our fantastic Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu program with me, Tommy Siegler. Our program is an opportunity to learn skills in versatile martial art that can be applied directly to the real world. So, come on in and take advantage of our program. Hustle for this good thing! We would love to have you; all you have to do is seize this opportunity.
