STRIKE WHILE THE IRON IS HOT OR MAKE HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINE
When life presents opportunities we must seize them and not let them go . Everyone in their lifetime gets some chances to move ahead . Each big change is a godsend and we must seize it move forward in life . something or the other or some person makes it easy for us to get in life . That is what the proverb means .
We must strike while the iron is hot . In other words ,we must make hay while the sun is shining . In any sport , the winner is the one who looks for opportunities to overcome his opponents by taking advantage of his weakness .
It is also true that once we miss that opportunity it may never come our way again . And then we will live all our life to regret the missed chance .We must also put in our own efforts . But never lose out on the chance that comes our way . When an opportunity presents itself we must seize it and use it to go further in life . Then only can we be successful .
