    A quote

    I came across this quote "Opportunity is missed by most people because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work " on the net . What is the meaning of "it's dressed in overalls and looks like work " in this context ?

    Thanks

    Re: A quote

    I think it means that many opportunities look too much like hard work for people to appreciate them.
