Cultivate the ability to see opportunity and accelerate your success exponentially
Life in constantly generating new possibilities and opportunities
in every moment.
If you don’t know this,
you are definitely sleeping through your life.
If you are an entrepreneur
who wants to succeed at something,
build a successful business,
you must train yourself to be alive
to the synchronicities arising
through your life experience.
Fear and doubt are the two biggest factors responsible for entrepreneurs missing the opportunities that life is trying to hand them.
It is such a Catch-22 situation.
You may be confronting a problem
or a challenge
or an obstacle.
You may be feeling frustrated
But underneath those feelings
fear and doubt are typically
the real reason you are stuck.
Fear and doubt focus your attention on what you don’t want.
Unfortunately, what you give attention to
expands in your awareness.
So at the very time when you are needing
and new possibilities to arise,
you are blinded by an increasing stream
of dead ends and obstacles
Can you see how for an entrepreneur mindset is everything?
Mindset is a simple term
for something going on in you
that is rather complex.
The brain is an amazing thing.
But few people take the time
to understand how it works.
(Not that anyone understands completely
how the brain works…but we do know some stuff)
There is a part of the brain
called the reticular activating system. (RAS)
Its job is to filter through the billions
of particles of information
flowing by you in every nanosecond,
pick out what is important for you to know,
and bring it to your attention.
The default programming for the RAS is to flag stuff that threatens your survival.
For this reason, if you don’t program your RAS
it will keep you focused on scary stuff
that you don’t want.
And for sure, if your RAS is busy looking for threats
it will completely ignore opportunities.
Do you see where I am going with this?
If you are an entrepreneur,
and you want to succeed,
and success depends on noticing opportunities,
you will only notice opportunities
if you program your RAS to look for them.
How do you override the default programming of the RAS and teach it to show you opportunities?
You have to get conscious about intentionally focusing
your awareness on what you want,
instead of what you don’t want.
Suppose you are eating dinner at a friend’s house
and the friend asks you, “What do you want for dinner?”
You are likely to start by telling them what you don’t want.
“I don’t want Italian food. I had that for lunch.”
“Not chicken, I’m sick of chicken.”
“How about Chinese food?”
“No, I had that yesterday.”
See what I mean?
We tend to focus on what we don’t want.
Then we are surprised when we get more of that.
Once you learn to focus your awareness
(and through awareness, your RAS)
on what you want,
more of that shows up.
Use your conscious intention to give your RAS a new assignment.
“Look for what I want.”
“Look for possibilities.”
“Look for opportunities.”
And opportunity itself is changing.
“It’s important to change our ideas of what it looks like and where it is. Once we have that update, opportunity pops into view. It becomes abundant. You start to see it everywhere.” — Eben Pagan
Once you have that system working,
lot of opportunities will show up.
Then you need to have the discernment
to figure out which ones to act upon.
Opportunities are the seeds of longterm success.
But not all opportunities are worth pursuing.
And sometimes, something that seemed like a good opportunity
reaches a point of diminishing returns.
So successful entrepreneurs are flexible.
Flexible enough to try something new,
explore new possibilities,
explore new perspectives,
even explore new relationships.
But also flexible enough to notice
when something isn’t working out.
The dynamics of our world have created fertile soil for opportunity.
Technology makes it much easier
to take what you imagine
and bring it into the world of form.
That is good news for entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs tend to be highly creative people.
Opportunity is like candy to successful entrepreneurs.
There are more sources of funding to capitalize opportunities than ever before.
The most important place for entrepreneurs to seek out opportunities is within the very setbacks and obstacles that are keeping them stuck.
This is the ultimate success key.
Instead of allowing barriers and obstacles to destroy your success, use them to fuel your success.
By allowing yourself to redefine obstacles as opportunities you tell your RAS to search within the problem itself to find the solution.
This is the key to becoming unstoppable.
If what appears to be stopping you always provides the means to point you in the direction of greater success nothing can stand in your way for long.
I do this by setting impossible goals.
Achieving impossible goals has become the key to my success.
