According to uberfacts, in 2002, a 19-year-old garbage collector won $15 million dollars – He spent it on gambling, drugs and prostitutes. He’s a garbage man again.
Wow! What a tragedy!
This is what happens to a man who is not prepared for success.
Mental preparation is the first and most important step in succeeding. I would have thought that, while working at his job of collecting garbage, he would have fantasized about going on to bigger things, but obviously, he was contented with what he was doing and when the UNEXPECTED happened, he didn’t know what to do with it and thereby, wasted it.
According to Benjamin Disraeli, “the secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.”
Success loves preparation. If the perfect opportunity presented itself today, would you be ready? It’s better to be ready and not have an opportunity, than to have an opportunity and not be ready.
To succeed, you must be ready when opportunity comes. Spend your time preparing for success, when your opportunity comes, you’ll be glad you did.
