Your Opportunity Is Calling
Years and years ago, during the old Morse code days, there was a job opening for people who knew the dots-and-dashes system.
Many had come to apply for the job, and all were waiting in the outer office to hear if they had gotten it.
After a while, a young man came in through the door, then stopped and listened to the dots and dashes coming from the next room. He looked at the other applicants who were talking to each other, then walked across the room and through the door into the office.
After a few minutes, the young man came out and said,
You can all go home. I’ve got the job. The others said, What do you mean? You just got here. We’ve been waiting all morning.
Didn’t you hear the dots and dashes saying, Do you read me? Do you read me? If you can read this, come in. You have the job?
Well, I knew the dots and dashes. I was prepared…I was listening…and I went in. I now have the job. You can all go home.”
Opportunity is calling your name. Are you listening?
