Janice knows about answering the knock of opportunity and she inspires others every day. Imagine you owned a successful business that supported you and your family and allowed you to live on a beautiful lavender farm offering home stays to visitors to California. Then she fell down and broke her leg. After several operations and losing the farm, Janice discovered an opportunity that changed her life. Working the TalkFusion business she helps other businesses with communication as well as many individuals develop their own independence and income stream of six figures.
What is an Opportunity?
Dictionaries define an opportunity as a set of circumstances that make it possible for us to do something.
Every day there are opportunities but for many of us our challenge is which one to choose. The challenge for you is which choice?
This is you get stuck and fail to excel.
This is also why you can look at opportunities and see them as a gamble. You have too many choices and they all come with a cost. This cost is the opportunity cost.
You will either spend money or time with following up on every opportunity. More if you spend time with one opportunity, you are unable to follow up another opportunity. This is when the concept of “can I afford not to” becomes important. What will you gain and lose in time and money and what will that mean for other future activities?
When you choose an opportunity, you need to look at how it will fit with your overall life.
Recently a couple confessed on national television that when Lotto prizes where large, they saw it as an opportunity to invest up to $5000.oo per draw in hopes of winning over $20,000,000 dollars. Now that may be fine but if the jackpot increases for five weeks with no one winning, including them, and they invest $5000 per week, they are out $25,000. Yes if they won the big prize, life would have been great but what happens if they lose? How will they recover from the loss of the use of their $25,000? (Rumour has it that they might actually have won about $15,000).
Looking at opportunity always has a cost.
Why You Should Consider Opportunities?
- Unless you are growing and developing and making a difference to your life, you get stuck.
- Unless you keep your mind active and challenge yourself, you get stuck and possibly unhealthy and unhappy.
- Unless you try new things, you may lose everything because times have moved on and you are left behind. You get stuck with old technology, old systems and sometimes even illegal processes.
Look Cautiously at ALL opportunities but Choose Wisely
You do not know what you do not know so keep your mind open, keep out of stuck and excel by living a life that is always growing. After all, you are you interested in rotting?
