Your Window of Opportunity

You ever said to yourself a statement like, “I’ll start doing BLANK once I have A, B and C completed”? I’ve been down this road too many times in the past. What made me realize that I needed to change my ways now instead of later was time. You cannot get time back. Once it’s used, it’s gone.

Anyone that knows me personally knows that for majority of my life thus far, I always played it “safe”. I always had a secured job and took few risks in life. In 2015, all of that changed when I published my book, How to Pimp Corporate America and quit my six figure income job to start a motivational speaking tour in February 2016 to 39 states and 88 cities. My dad and everyone else in my inner circle probably thought I was nuts! Taking that risk changed my life forever.

Upon my return from my tour, I knew I wanted to focus more on my business but kept delaying the time to fully commit to my passion in life. One day, I woke up and realized that making 6 figures a year is just a drop in the bucket because I can make that same amount in one month as an entrepreneur. That’s when I decided that enough is enough and that I need to get my time back and make a change fast or else I’ll miss my window of opportunity.

When it comes to your dream career, you have to make time to achieve it or else you’ll be saying at an old age, “I wish I would’ve just done BLANK when I had the chance to.” Your window of opportunity is open for a short amount of time. On the road to success, choose your actions wisely.
