Getting an opportunity (Any): What to do next?

Opportunity is the word we like to hear! And, it’s always good when opportunities come when we are prepared. I recently read an article on how to grab opportunities and take charge of your life.  It  lists 6 points: "Have a vision of what you want, set goals, imagine opportunities wherever you look, be persistent, take action, and pursue what gives you meaning."  But then, I constantly ask myself this question: After you get an opportunity, how do you make the best out of it? Getting an opportunity is really great, but I think that someone's behavior inside the opportunity matters too. For example, being an undergrad student in Engineering, you are exposed to different and many programs that equip you with skills you need in order to understand well lessons in class and have an idea on what the real world looks like-However, asking questions and active participation in those programs may help you explore the opportunity and help you get another! How do you behave after getting any opportunity?  Let’s share some tips on how to make sure you are using the opportunity you get!
