If a fisherman wants to catch a fish, he needs to cast his line.

He then needs to be ready to reel in a fish if he gets a bite.

If a lion wants to catch a gazelle, she needs to wait in a good ambush spot.

She then needs to be ready to pounce when her prey wanders past.

If a job seeker wants employment, he needs to send out his application.

He then needs to be ready for an interview.

If you knock on a door, you’ve got to be ready for when it opens.

It’s not enough to want it.

It’s not enough to position yourself.

You have to be ready when the opportunity presents.

Only then can you achieve your goals.
