The Good And Bad Of Opportunity
Will You Be Ready When Opportunities Appear?
What's great about business in America is the freedom to place a thought into the world and create a profitable lifestyle from it.
And as our civilization advances, more and more opportunities will come around as new segments of business arrive.
Whether is be from technology, the people you meet, the experience you create for yourself, or a new form of a business model that was right under everyones noses, but you acted on it first.
There will be a surge of these kinds of advances coming and going. The window will open for you many times in your life, but now there will be closing A LOT faster as soon as you see it.
People Who Make A Difference In Our Society Know What To Do With Opportunities
Some of the most successful people I studied from seem to know the many faces of opportunity, and intuitively know when to act on them or not.
One common mistake for business owners is what is called Opportunity Shock, where you seem to have too many coming up that places you in a position where you do not want to make a decision.
It's nice to have 2 or 3 opportunities coming your way, but what if a wave of dozens seem to overcome you and you just don't know how to act around it?
This is where the business shakers seem to shine and really take hold of what is before them and place their bets on what is the best for them and the people that it will benefit.
One thing to have for certain is knowing what your expertise is, and when you see opportunity, ask yourself if what you know well matches with what is before you.
If an opportunity comes around that you know you can dive in head first and with lots of energy, get in there and start as fast as you can.
Avoid The Wave Of Emotions That Come With Opportunities
When you realize that everyone gets their shot in the exponential growth of opportunities, its very important to keep your emotions in check.
One of the biggest deterrents of making a sound decision is when your emotions have locked you into one perspective of seeing things.
And when it comes to BIG decisions, this is not a good point of view.
Feelings like anger, loss, jealousy, envy and remorse from just one lost opportunity will prevent you from experiencing the abundance of all the other opportunities waiting for you.
Never let the success of someone else, or the failures of your own be the stopping point of receiving more chances in the long run.
There is more to benefit from than you think, and you need all the willpower you have in your character to take it with the most sound decision making processes you have.
Just Enough Or More?
When you've laid the groundwork for an opportunity, and it grows into being something spectacular, will you stop there or will you seek more?
There will always be more chances for you to jump aboard a new endeavor that complements your skillset.
And any opportunity you embark on, whether it be a success or failure, will provide an inevitable form of experience that only you can describe.
That experience is what makes either your current business project blossom into new innovations, and/or provide a faster track to take on a brand new venture. The choice is always yours, but experience will always be the main driver of where you are headed to.
