Oh, look! Opportunity is Knocking


I mean, I get the figure of speech, but it rarely works that way. Quite frankly, opportunity often comes as the result of a ton of knocking of your own. Even in the most seemingly supportive examples of this, rarely does opportunity slap someone in the face who is sitting on the coach on their third episode of New Girl and their second bowl of ice cream.

You know all those people that have success “fall into their lap?” Think again. Look back at all the work they did putting the pieces in place for them to fall in their favor.

You know, this place is that way, too. Never, and I mean never with a capital ‘N’ has someone knocked on my door seeking opportunity only to be denied. In my opinion, there is no defeating a willing man or woman. So, this place will forever support the motivated few.

Think about that.

Ask. Receive. It’s as simple as that. OK, well maybe not as simple as asking. But, asking and then acting will often do the trick. Put your money where your mouth is.

As FFOTB extends its reach with DEUCE Gym in Venice, our ability to provide opportunity only get bigger. Let me be clear. This a broad claim on purpose. Ask Mike Arnold what happened when he asked for workout ideas on the road? Ask Dan Estes what happened when he mentioned wanting to run a 10K?

Not looking for nutrition or fitness opportunity, guess who is doing the logo work for DEUCE? What about the office design? The endurance program? Website? You guess it, the people that knocked are.

Looking for opportunity? Do some knocking!
