Opportunism - RAMMFIT

Opportunism - RAMMFIT

People who lack the courage, drive and determination to make shit happen and get shit done, view opportunism as something to be ashamed about. They don't understand that opportunities are everywhere and it's up to you to take advantage of them. What people think of you taking advantage of opportunities they're too lazy or timid to take, is none of your business. What is your business, is that you keep winning without violating the rights of others. Winning is not winning if you walk all over people to get what you want. That's called being a grub.

Opportunities are there if you look for them and here is the interesting part. Most people hit temporary defeat and give up without realizing that there are lessons to be found, opportunities disguised as failure. Opportunities can look like too much effort for a lot of people so they quit, Instead of taking advantage of situations that present themselves as a result of bad luck/ defeat.

Opportunistic people are resourceful. They know how to turn hard lessons learned into power or something advantageous. In one of my favourite books written by Robert Greene and Curtis Jackson called "The 50th Law", Robert Green writes under Reversal of Perspective;

In modern usage, "opportunist"is a derogatory term that refers to people who will do anything for themselves. They have no core values beyond promoting their own needs. They contribute nothing to society. This, however, is a misreading of the phenomenon and stems from an age-old elitism that wants to see opportunities kept as privileges kept for the powerful few. Those from the bottom who dare to promote themselves in any way is seen as machiavellian, while those already at the top who practice the same strategies are merely smart and resourceful. Such judgments are a reflection of fear. 

.

To see opportunity around you, you must first get rid of the mindset that you don't deserve them or you don't have the right to take advantage of them. Remember this next time you see an opportunity. If you don't do it, someone else with the courage, drive and determination to make shit happen and get shit done will and guess what.....

.

You lose.
