Don’t let me be Distracted by another Shiny Object!..Day4

Don’t let me be Distracted by another Shiny Object!..Day 4

We are so often distracted by yet another “Shiny Object” and the only way to avoid that is “to board the train at the station and go on an extraordinary journey!” How many times have you been invited to participate in a “superb, never to be repeated” opportunity that will change your life forever!

It will not change your life forever AND IT IS ONLY WITH BELIEF and “hard work, willing to learn, willing to take action and following the system” that you will achieve your goals. Just follow a simple training program and be part of a team of like-minded people who have similar aspirations of a better life.

Those of you in the world of network marketing for a few years now, will know how easy it is to be distracted by “shiny objects or magic bullets!”
Although I am primarily loyal to my main business opportunity, unfortunately when looking on the Internet I often see money making schemes that look so good, or have my “advisers” out there, who know that I am looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, guiding me to new opportunities too! AND don’t they look great! I have investigated many of these, but almost without exception, they lead me down an alleyway to nowhere! Click the image below:-

I have joined The Game of Tribes:-

  • Provides a simple “step by step” training program
  • No complicated technology and set up arrangements
  • You don’t need to be an expert blogger
  • It will help you if you have an established business or you wish to set up a new business
  • It does not matter whether you are new to the internet or not

The other day, a friend of mine sent me a link about an opportunity using Google Search. For a one-off fee and working a minimum of one hour a day, I could earn some good money. I thought this could run alongside quite comfortably with what I am doing so I signed up. I was immediately confronted with an opportunity to enroll with a “support leader” for an introductory fee and so much per month! I explained that my funds were limited at this time and therefore I could not afford any additional costs. You have to be so careful not to be lulled into other commitments until you are ready! Build up your own marketing fund first.
Okay, so that was fine, and then I was invited to start enrolling in the basic scheme but of course before I could get going I would need a personal website for this business – ie a domain name and web hosting! They recommended their own website designer to help me but I could use one of my own domain names if I wished. I thought this was good – that would save a few dollars and the cost of web hosting would only be a few dollars a month.
WRONG! I was presented with a list of costs in order to set up my website – a fee of over $200 and monthly payments! That included a transfer fee of $14 for my own domain name which was more than I had paid for it anyway!
At that moment, I shouted ” I don’t want to be distracted by another shiny object or magic bullet!” – not any more, I’ve had enough! – at last I had broken the Power of Distraction within me!
power of distraction

From now on, I promise most faithfully that I will concentrate all my energy and effort on two key projects. Why do anything else? It has got all the ingredients that I ever wanted from an internet business and the potential is enormous!
