Perception, Opportunity and Dennis The Menace

I ran across a TERRIFIC quote today. Many of you will think back to the TV series and reminisce about this person, and the interesting thing to me is the TAG or LABEL that we put on him.

"People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning."~ Dennis the Menace

Wow, you may remember the series was about a little boy who was ALWAYS getting in to things. Let's twist our perception around for a minute. NOW we see that the premise IS that Dennis believed that opportunity was there, EVERY DAY and all he had to do guessed it, TAKE ACTION!

Think about the other characters, Mr. & Mrs. Wilson the neighbors and even The Mitchells, his parents. The original comic strip set Dennis in the early 50's I think, when I was growing up. In those days, Mothers wore aprons and wouldn't think of working (the were proud HOUSEWIVES) and the elderly retirees, The Wilsons were not forward thinking people. Mr. Wilson put years in to 1 job, retired and then just wanted to sit in his rocking chair and rock away the rest of his life.

Now think about the flavor and opportunity that Dennis gave to the Wilsons! Hmmm, even Mrs. Wilson became Dennis' champion, somehow seeing and appreciating that Dennis was bringing Mr. Wilson back to a meaningful life rather than twiddling his life away on a Rocker :-) Dennis was keeping Mr. Wilson active and engaged in life!

Opportunity comes in various shapes, sizes and colors my friend. They are the stuff of life, IF we take ACTION on them.

How lucky and blessed we are, finding people and resources that help us become better people and become MORE, for ourselves and our families.

Think Dennis Mitchell and see the world as he does. See every day as he does, and your life and business will flourish. Don't forget to SEE the Opportunity and then TAKE ACTION!

""""""Oh Mr. Wilssssssssssssssooon""""""!!!!!!!!!!! --

May your day be a treasure bringing Increase and Plenty to your door.
