Everybody wants to be the best they can be, but we don’t always take advantage of the opportunities sitting in front of us. Sometimes, maximum achievement just means being able to recognize and take action on those opportunities.

Two key elements of success are recognizing opportunity and having the skills or abilities to act on it: The recognition part might come down to experience or alertness; the skills and abilities part, on the other hand, can be developed and directed.

It’s all about personal development, self-improvement and planning for our future success. If you clearly know what you want and where you want to go, you will be able to identify and build the exact skills you need to get there. …

Some people attribute being successful to luck. Others call it good planning. Successful people get serious about their future and take personal responsibility for making it happen the way they want it to happen. They do not leave such an important thing up to luck.

Respected business coach and trainer Brian Tracy says, “Your greatest possibilities will come from the most common situations. In other words, your lucky break or opportunity may be lurking right under your nose.”

But, how will you recognize it? This is how: You must prepare your mind to be alert to possibilities and you must build knowledge and skills that support your maximum achievement goals.

“The more ability you have in any field,” says Brian, “the more ‘lucky’ opportunities that field will yield.”

He also emphasizes the fact that “Luck is what happens when preparedness meets opportunity.”

You’ve got to prepare yourself for success. If you are focused on clear goals, active in pursuing them and committed to ongoing education and personal development, you will achieve far more than the average person. Your achievements will be impressive and you will have people telling you how “lucky” you are to be so successful.

The smart ones will ask you how you did it and you will tell them that it is no surprise, you planned it that way.

If you are seeking to maximize your abilities and your achievement, many training resources are available from Brian Tracy International. I recommend the The Maximum Achievement Training Kit. Take a look at it to see if it is something that can help you get focused on fulfilling your true potential.
