The Answer If You Are Bombarded with Opportunities and Don’t Know Which Way to Go

September 1, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about having many opportunities in business.

Hey, folks, it’s Shawn. Talking today about what do you do when you’re bombarded with multiple opportunities and you don’t know which way to go. This is what happens when we have great plans working.

We talk about planning. We talk about building a life of your dreams, knowing your destination and where you’re going, and executing on plans and protecting yourself. That’s The 3 Laws of Empowerment – prepare, plan, protect. We’re constantly talking about that. And when you do this, great things start to happen. You build momentum and opportunities will come to you. And part of what we talk about in planning is being flexible and realizing that we don’t know exactly which turns we’re going to get, but we know the destination.

So what do we do when we’re bombarded with multiple opportunities and we don’t know which way to go? Well, we only really need one thing working for us in our lives and our businesses. We need one thing working really well. Many of your very successful companies out there are great at one thing and they execute on that one thing. They don’t do 20 things. They do one thing very well.

What’s your one thing? What is your “captured power” as I call it? What are you doing that’s beyond the marketplace? And what is consistent with your 10-year vision and dream? These are the things that are going to tell you where you should be building your time and energy.

So if you’re bombarded with opportunities, congratulations. You’re doing something right. People are recognizing it. And now you’ve got to think about what’s consistent with your 10-year plan and what’s consistent with your greatness? Where do you want to focus your time and your energy to do more? Build it from there. So keep things going forward, build that momentum.
