“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

~ Thomas Alva Edison

According to Dictionary.com, an opportunity is a situation or condition favorable for attainment of a goal. It is a chance or prospect. Learning about opportunity can sometimes be confusing, especially since opportunities can be hard to see, even when they are right in front of you. Each of us has the opportunity to become a great martial artist, simply because we are here, in a place we can learn. Don’t take that for granted; nothing is a given. We are here because someone gave us the opportunity to learn a martial art. It is important to be grateful for this, and to see it for the opportunity it is.

1. What made you want to take martial arts?

2. Have you thanked your parents or guardians for this opportunity?

3. Do you think you should? Why or why not?
