Your Escape Tunnel

In today’s pressure-filled society, it is easy to feel as though you are trapped inside ‘The System’. Many people feel trapped by their job and their financial circumstances and find themselves yearning for freedom.

This freedom involves not only financial freedom, but also the freedom to do what you want, when you want, with who you want. Perhaps you can relate to the following picture?

In an effort to break free from ‘The System’, many people investigate different options for creating passive income such as share trading, property investing, network marketing or starting a business.

Each of these options is like starting to dig an escape tunnel that can lead you to freedom from the system as shown below.

But here is the biggest mistake mistake that people make…

They begin to dig their escape tunnel and initially make some progress, but then things start to get tough, so they give up on their tunnel and decide to start digging a different tunnel.

For example, you buy an investment property and then have a bad experience with a tenant. At the same time you hear about a ‘revolutionary’ new share trading system that is guaranteed to work, so you stop digging your property investing tunnel and start digging a share trading tunnel.

This situation is sometimes known as ‘opportunity hopping’

The problem with opportunity hopping is that the end result is usually this:

You end up doing a lot of digging but remain trapped in ‘The System’ with multiple escape tunnels that lead nowhere.

So what’s the answer?

The answer is FOCUS.

To achieve the freedom you desire, you must carefully review your options and then commit yourself to focusing on the tunnel that you believe will give you the best chance of success.

This opportunity you choose is up to you and depends on your personality, your skills, and most importantly – what you enjoy.

By committing to one tunnel and focusing all your energies on consistent digging, you will maximize your chances of achieving the freedom you and your family deserve.

Action Steps:

This week, take time to really sit down and review all the ‘projects’ and ‘ideas’ you have been working on and ask yourself these two important questions.

(1) Which opportunity am I most passionate about?

(2) Which opportunity do I believe offers me the greatest chance of success?

When you can answer these two questions, commit to your escape tunnel and keep digging!

Until next time,

Dare To Dream!
