Opportunity is a Golden Ticket — 38 Comments

  1. I love the title of this piece! I’ve ha so many treasures by just taking a leap of faith

  2. Love the concept of the “golden ticket” and I love Roald Dahl, such great children’s books.

  3. What a great quote I love it. I always love your motivational quotes.

  4. Stepping outside your comfort zone is always scary. But once you take that first leap, you see that it wasnt as bad as you thought.

  5. Some opportunities can be so scary to take, but you have to leap while the door’s open or you might miss it all together. I think a lot of great things come from just taking the chance.

  6. I wish more people took the leap when they had a chance. So many opportunities are gone when people don’t take the Golden Ticket.

  7. Very good quote! My project this fall is to learn how to make greeting cards! I want o design my own holiday cards!

  8. I think that when we’re brave and willing to go out of our comfort zones and + seek out those “golden ticket moments,” the risk is always worth it! I’ve always loved the whimsy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and try not too be too much like Veruca Salt. 🙂

  9. Thanks for reminding me. My blogging inspires me. It opens so many doors to such amazing experiences for me and my family, I am very grateful. But sometimes I forget! So, that’s where the thanks to you comes in for today!

  10. This is great advice. I’m always inspired but never seem to have the time to follow through. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Finding inspiration should really be the base of all you do otherwise it’s hard to keep the momentum up! Whether it’s how hard you work at work or your fitness goals! (those are my personal ones I work real hard for my inspiration to keep me going!)

  12. I agree, many times opportunity won’t knock at all. You have to be willing to go out and look for it!

  13. Sometimes opportunity knocks, and sometimes you have to reach out your door and wrestle it into submission. Either way, the main thing you have to do is have the courage to go after what you want.

  14. I invested in a new idea just last night. (I’m not releasing too much about my idea just yet.) I’m excited because it’s something so different than anything I’ve tried before. I’m hoping it’s successful. I saw the opportunity and jumped on it. 🙂

  15. Such a great concept. It is a golden ticket. Now just find that opportunity!

  16. What a great quote. I think a lot of people miss out on their golden ticket by not taking a chance.

  17. I like the comparison of calling opportunity a golden ticket. All too often we don’t snatch that golden ticket and opportunities just pass us by. I need to start thinking of them as golden tickets so I don’t miss out when opportunity does come knocking!

  18. Inspiration can help you along in life.I always say life is what you make it.I am not the sort of person to sit around and wait for something to happen I go and make it happen.

  19. Yes!!!! We must do the work so we are ready to take advantage of opportunities that are potential Golden Tickets.

  20. In that case,the audition is still an opportunity and you should still make the most of it. If you get the role, that role may be a Golden Ticket.

  21. You are the first person I have ever heard get inspired by makeup. It is great because makeup can do so much to make you look and feel better.

  22. I’ve realized that despite all my hard work lately, my “Golden Ticket” has not come because I’ve not updated my groundwork. So I’m saying “yes” to nearly all opportunities, while renovating and building up the foundation as well!

  23. But what about an opportunity that is merely an audition? It’s not a golden ticket because the producers and the casting directors and sheer fate are working against you. I agree that you have to be the best you can be and hope it’s the right fit.

  24. I think too many people let fear get in the way. You will never know what you can do until you take a chance. Having something that inspire you is fortunate

  25. I agree that finding something that inspires you is a great place to start. I choose makeup just because of what all you can do with it and it’s opened up a whole new world for me.

  26. I definitely think sometimes we need to take a chance when we get it and just go for it.

How do these ideas work in your world?
