I’d like to share a short story with you.
This morning my wife was grocery shopping at
Wegmans – our local supermarket.
A strange man approached her and asked if she
would take a survey. They wanted to get her
opinion on the store prices.
The man then yelled: “Ok Fellas! She’ll take the
survey – come on out!”
Three more people jumped out from the next aisle!
One guy carried a television camera. Another guy had a
microphone. The third person was lugging a lighting
These guys were shooting a television
commercial for Wegmans. They wanted
testimonials from real customers.
Wegmans is a fantastic grocery store. In fact, it
is more of an “experience” than a grocery store.
So my wife had no trouble giving Wegmans a glowing
review on camera.
The TV men were really happy that she talked
so enthusiastically about the store.
They even invited her back for some future
Of course, she will ask to be paid next time!
Getting on TV is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Some people work their entire lives for just one
chance to get on TV.
The reason my wife got on TV with almost no effort
is simple: She was in the right place at the right time.
How can you apply this to your life?
It’s true that you can’t predict where the next big
opportunity will show up.
I don’t suggest you spend all day at the grocery
Finding opportunities like this one is *mostly*
beyond your control.
However, you CAN control the odds of getting
your big break.
For example, you can control the people you associate with.
Do you hang out with lazy people who criticize your
Or, do you seek out successful people who encourage
and compliment you?
You can do lots of small things to control and attract
opportunity. For example, you can seek out a successful
local business owner and ask he or she to have lunch with
You can join a local business mastermind
You can choose to associate yourself with people
who encourage you and push you towards your goals
(like Dave and I do).
You can also PREPARE yourself for opportunity.
My wife did not leave the house today expecting to
get on TV. However, she was prepared for just such
For example, she was dressed nicely. She wore
dress jeans and a business-casual type shirt. She
looked the part of an ideal Wegmans shopper.
In short, she was prepared for opportunity that might happen.
A lot of people went to Wegmans today dressed in dirty
sweat pants and sweat stained t-shirts.
Nobody asked them to be in the commercial.
There are lots of things you can do to prepare
for opportunity. Here are just a few:
1. Dress the part.
2. Keep an open mind.
3. Strike up conversations with people in line at
You just never know where your next big
break will come from. Why not prepare yourself
to grab it when it shows up?
These opportunities may show up at random, unexpectedly.
You can also be more aggressive about this and create your own opportunities.

or place to create opportunity than in New York
