Memo – Opportunity Overload

When I was in Real Estate, I got a call from a man named Curtis.

He was interested in an investment property I had on the market.

AND…

He was interested in getting me to a network marketing meeting.

But what he said intrigued me... so I went.

When I got there, I was even more intrigued.

The guy on stage had 100 properties and drove a Porsche.

He promised to help us achieve our dreams, if we joined the college.

I joined.

The instructors were even more successful than he was.

He was just the sales guy.

These were actual Real Estate investing experts.

I was happy with my decision.

But…

I never got a profitable return on my investment.

Why?

Because I got overloaded with opportunities.

They taught 30 different systems on real estate investing.

I studied 10 of them.

And after 2 years, I was more confused and less profitable than before I got that call from Curtis.

On paper, it looks good to have lots of opportunities.

In reality, at least for me, it didn’t work out.

If I could go back in time, I would have picked 1 of the 30 systems and mastered it.

Then I would have spent the rest of my life mastering 1 system at a time.

Can you relate?

Do you suffer from opportunity overload?

Here is how to fix it…

Imagine the Grand Canyon. You are on one side of the canyon and your pot of gold is on the other side of the canyon. Maybe you want financial freedom, maybe you want to enjoy your work, maybe you are trying to raise money for a cause, whatever your goal is, the only way to get it is by building a bridge.

The problem is, we live in a day & age where opportunities are everywhere. It's hard to decide which one is best. And when we do, another opportunity comes around & distracts us from the project we are currently working on.

This results in a dozen half-built bridges.

Imagine if you had poured all those resources into one single bridge.

The way out of this trap is to pick one bridge... and only one bridge. Maybe it's Facebook advertising, maybe it's copywriting, maybe it's email marketing... it could be any single bridge.

The most important factor in making your decision is determining which bridge is going to be the best way to get your pot of gold.

Here is why this is so important....

Once you finish 1 bridge, you not only get your pot of gold, but you also create an income stream that will provide you with the money, time & energy to build another bridge.

Now you can hire people to build your 2nd bridge & your 3rd bridge & so on. Here is the problem...

There are hundreds, even thousands of bridges you COULD build.

This leads to analysis paralysis. You can't decide which bridge is the best bridge, so you go back to what you were working on & stay stuck.

That is exactly why I wrote a quiz for you. I want you to get clarity around which bridge to build first. All you do is answer a dozen questions & a couple minutes from now, you will have clarity.
