“When an opportunity is knocking, don’t complain about the noise.” –  Chad Veach

Progress, growth, and/or learning don’t come easy.  You don’t sit down at a piano and begin playing.  You don’t pick up a nail gun and start nailing.

Whatever comes easy to you, eventually, will get to the point where the next step comes harder.  The next skill is more intricate.  The next concept is more complex.

The competition is harder.  You discover there is someone who may be as talented, that works as hard, and may want it as much.

The risk is higher.  The stakes are steep.  But it makes things interesting.  Your heart leaps.  It gets you going in the morning.

People who “happen to the world” seek those opportunities.  They don’t complain about them.
