Don’t you love this saying of my episode title!? It’s one of those sobering, make-you-think type of sayings. Like those you see on Facebook memes.
Focus Will Make You Rich
Shiny Objects Will Make You Blind
It’s amazing how easy it is to get distracted, right? We’re all guilty of it. I know I am. That’s why I decided to make this the subject of today’s episode. To help you – and me – to stay on course. (To be quite honest, I feel almost like a hypocrite even talking on this subject, but I’m in deep now!)
My main problem is when I see a friend doing a certain kind of investing, or a certain kind of marketing… immediately that becomes the shiny object and I’m so very tempted to veer off my course and go follow someone else’s. It’s crazy, but it’s such an easy trap to fall into. Can you relate?
It also happens with other businesses that I see online – when someone has become successful at something, and it looks like it would be so easy and simple. But I have to stop and ask: Will this take me where I want to go in life?
Let’s walk through this challenge together, shall we?
