The Art of Social Opportunity

Social opportunity, the theory that your social networks, environment, and inherited status affect the opportunities that are presented to you in life. Though it takes its fair share, hard work isn’t the only thing that brings on success. Pieces of the puzzle like finances, culture, and personal environment can either make or break your course of success. In his book Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell spells out exactly how social opportunities affect us in every facet of life. He states, “Success is not a random act. It arises out of a predictable and powerful set of circumstances and opportunities.”

Regardless of where you come from, there is one enduring tip to success: keep your eyes open for opportunities where you can and embrace them with gusto! What does success look like to you?
