Don"t Let Your Opportunity Cost Become Your Opportunity Lost
I had found a terrific Internet based business that suited me, one that offered huge potential, a terrific compensation plan and the chance to earn an income while I was learning the tricks of the trade.
I was all but ready to sign up, my mind was made up that this is what I really wanted to do.
Then for some apparent reason I just froze, that's when all the doubt began to kick in, I was thinking whether this was gonna work or would I just be wasting me time.
I thought to myself why don't I just go out and find a 'real' job in the middle of a global credit crunch.
Furthermore I was about to invest a considerable amount of money, what if I couldn't make this work? I would lose that sum.
I took me a week to decide and you could say I was at a crossroads in my life, did I want to take charge of my circumstances or would I let circumstances dictate my life.
I went over the business tour again and again just to re-assure myself, I dug deeper finding out more about my mentor and how that person had achieved their success.
I spent hours viewing YouTube videos of the most successful people in this business.
All this had a resounding effect on me, the videos were inspirational and I was sure I could make it work if I gave it my best shot.
Then it actually dawned on me that I would be running my own internet based business! so I had to treat it like a job and not a hobby.
I was excited by this prospect as it's I then realized what this opportunity really meant.
Your Opportunity Cost is thus, Money: Your Layout would be considerably smaller than if you were to go out and purchase a franchise or buy your own store to sell products, or even sell stock on e-bay.
Cost: The cost of running your own Internet business is peanuts compared to running a business where you have to employ staff, buy stock and pay for business premises including, business rates and utility bills.
Compensation Plan: Instant payments into your account as opposed to people buying on credit from you or in service industry terms payment on completion of the project/job.
Hours: Your business you choose the hours that suit you, the more you put in the more you get out of it, which can hardly be said if your slaving away 40 plus hours a week and getting little recognition for you efforts from your boss.
Commuting: You can work from anywhere, so no more joining the rat race every morning, jostling for space in overcrowded carriages or being stuck in traffic.
Lifestyle: This is why you are doing it this is what you want and this is what you are working towards, you know the rewards are substantial and that they can be achieved in a relatively short space of time.
Why would you want to work very hard for so many years and not see anything for your endeavour knowing all along that you are contributing to making somebody else wealthy.
I could have listed 20 more points but the above are some of the most stand out for me personally.
I am going to conclude by asking you this when you come across an opportunity that you know could potentially change your circumstances, change your lifestyle even, are you going to let it slip by you again, do you want to regret it months or years down the line? are you willing to let your Opportunity Cost become your Opportunity lost? To your success and Health Panos Christo
