philosophy from Barry Manilow              2/4/09

"success comes when preparation and opportunity meet together."  

 

I heard this quote last night out of the mouth of none other than Barry Manilow!

 

This sums up what life is all about.  Opportunities are going to come, but what happens with those opportunities is all about what we have done to prepare ourselves.  

 

This applies to our jobs, our marriages, our financial opportunities, sharing the message of Christ, and pretty much everything.   

 

If I can teach my son one thing in this life, it would be to live his life in preparation for the opportunities that God will put before Him.  

 

Proverbs 16:1

to man belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the reply of the tongue.

 

I think we can all apply this principle from Barry Manilow.
