Seizing Opportunities 101

Morning folks.

Straight to the point then…

Disclaimer: I came across today’s post on Dayo Daini’s wall on Facebook last night. The originality got me stupefied (to an extent sha -___-) and immediately I was done, I knew I didn’t have to write anything today.
I hope that was a smart move though.

Still, Enjoy and do drop a comment.

During a robbery , the bank robber shouted to everyone in the bank: “Don’t move. The money belongs to the State. Your life belongs to you.” Everyone in the bank laid down quietly.

This is called …”Mind Changing Concept
Changing the conventional way of thinking.

When a lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her: “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!”

This is called “Being Professional
Focus only on what you are trained to do!

When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA-trained) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in primary school): “Big brother, let’s count how much we got.” The older robber rebutted and said: “You are very stupid. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. Tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!”

This is called “Experience.”
Nowadays, experience is more important than paper qualifications!

After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. But the supervisor said to him: “Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.

This is called “Swim with the tide.” Converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!

The supervisor says: “It will be good if there is a robbery every month.”

This is called “Killing Boredom.”
Personal Happiness is more important than your job.

The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and
counted, but they could only count $20 million. The robbers were very angry and complained: “We risked our lives and only took $20 million. The bank manager took $80 million with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated than to be a thief!”

This is called “Knowledge is worth as much as gold!”

The bank manager was smiling and happy because his losses in the share market are now covered by this

This is called “Seizing the opportunity.” Daring to take risks!

Who are the real robbers here then?

This article made me laugh the first time I read it.
I dare not say the bank manager and supervisor are not crooks but damn, they are smart asses.
Life is more about making do with what it throws at you than following a script you created for yourself.
You never know what’s going to come your way tomorrow,  you should however be sure you’ll have an idea of deciphering it.
Opportunities always come knocking but they never linger. So, make sure you’re smart enough to wrestle them down and make do of the benefits they provide.

That said… Do have a lovely day.
