Gaining from unexpected opportunities

November 21, 2019

Gaining from unexpected opportunities is possible when we are flexible enough to embrace each situation as it is.

There will always be changes to deal with and projects invariably produce a surprise or two before their completion. Gaining from unexpected opportunities reflects a) our open approach to life and b) our desire to move towards goals despite the presence of extraordinary issues arising.

On the other hand, if we are so fixated on how we attempt to fulfil certain assignments, we might find it difficult to accept changes to our plans. In such instances, we would be unable to engage in gaining from unexpected opportunities even if they were advantageous to us.

As ever, how we view the moment, coupled with our ability to find a balance between how we perform this or that and the achievement of objectives, will impact on our eventual success.

To explore the question of gaining from unexpected opportunities as part of a coaching conversation, don’t hesitate to get in contact.
