What all these shiny objects have in common, they all provide you with the „one solution“ to change your life and make you financially free. But, is it true? Is there really „the solution“ out there to quit your job, order the Ferrari and buy the dream home?
My Experience With The Shiny Objects
As soon as people see that you are an internet marketers and have some consistence in your activity you get bombarded with the next big thing that changes your life.
Often on a daily basis I get pitched from people about new opportunity. And I have to be honest, it happens that I look into these „wonderful opportunities“ that will safe my life. But fact is, more often than not, I get distracted.
I get distracted from the work I have to do to create my dream life, the laptop lifestyle. Why are these shiny objects a distraction? The thing is, when someone offers you an opportunity, you have to stop, or worse not even beginning, your work on your business. And every distraction cost you time and money.
It cost you time, because you have to watch the presentation. It cost you time, because you think about and your thought don’t let you go back to work on your business. It cost you time, because you need much more energy to go back to your daily routine.
It cost you money when you join such shiny object. Because you think, this is exactly the one thing that grow my business even faster. The reality is mostly the opposite. You have to start at the beginning in these opportunities. You have to read instructions, you have to watch videos, you have to set up your funnel and your links and so on.

The question you have to ask yourself every time someone else offering you a new opportunity, is it really worth looking into this and will it really serve me?
Whatever business you are in, you have there the potential to make a living with it. The key to success with your business is, that you are persistent, improve your skills and take daily massive action.
