|An opportunity should never be bought into. By definition, an
opportunity is something that people will never sell you. From
franchises to swamp land in Florida, to patents and inventions,
it makes no difference. Theres nothing wrong with any of the
things mentioned, however if somebody is trying to sell you
these things, then they are not opportunities by definition.
An opportunity is an advantage that you can see that others
cannot. I dont care about the dictionary definition, this is the
real world definition. Opportunities are free. They dont cost
money to observe. Of course I dont mean they wont cost you
money, you may need some money to act on it. But if you are
paying money so somebody can sell it to you (a sales commission)
You should run for the hills.
So, getting back to my definition of an opportunity.
"Its an advantage that you can see that others cannot"
So what that means is that you have vision while others do not.
We are awash with money around us. Money or "value" is
everywhere. As "Hayden Muller" says, "it permeates our lives
like oxygen" The difficulty is not finding opportunity. It is
literally everywhere all the time. We are suffering from snow
blindness if we still work for a living when such abundance is
around us in our every day lives.
The difficulty is not money either. Having access to a few
hundred dollars is all you need to take advantage of a million
daily opportunities that present themselves in our daily lives.
Anyone with some determination can find that much.
No, the real difficulty is knowledge, or education. Its what
seperates action from indifference. The question becomes, "so
what?" "so what if I took this opportunity and made a few
dollars, what next?" You see, without education, opportunities
are meaningless. They lead now-where because we lack vision.
Don't worry, I lacked plenty of vision myself.
Today you could drop me out of the sky into any free city on the
Planet with nothing but the shirt on my back and I would be
living well within 3 months and be financially secure within 2-4
years. I know I can do that because my vision tells me I easily
Put me in the middle of New York, I would immediately find
markets to deal in. Even before I found a place to sleep, I
would begin learning about what free markets are available and
what they most want and need. I would quickly establish contacts
with suppliers and retailers to become the "middle man" my
favourite place to be.
Within a week, I would have a few hundred dollars saved. I would
use those funds and pyramid my purchases for faster and faster
turn over until I had enough to buy small assets that are in
high demand. Cars, boats, anything that was being sold that I
could find really cheaply. My charm and good looks would make
sure I got the best deals and sold them for the highest price
Charm and good looks aside, the one thing you need is a clarion
plan. A master plan that gets you from A to B
Making money with no money is easy and rudimentry. Its the
opportunities you spot that makes the real difference. But
really its the propensity to take action that delivers the
results. Before you can take that action, you need to know where
you are going.
Your situation is alot better then the scenario I presented
above. You live in a place where you know. You have intimate
knowledge of the markets available already present. You have
skills and have contacts already that can be of use.
Get a quick short education and go to it. Your first million is
not as difficult as you may imagine.
May success find you fast and knowledge find you sooner.
