I Found $250,000 in My Office Today

I woke up at 4:00 AM this morning.  Not by choice, mind you.  But instead it was one of those “an idea popped in my head, while I was sleeping” things that happen frequently to entrepreneurs (I’m sure you can relate).

Anyway, after tossing and turning for 30 minutes, I got out of bed.  Since the thought of working out at 4:30 AM wasn’t too appealing, I went down to my home office.  Typically, I would have jumped into the daily routine of checking emails and working on my to-do list.  However this morning, I promised myself I would do something different.

Staring at me, from across my office, was a training product I purchased five months ago.  The set of rather large binders and DVD cases looked quite impressive sitting on my bookshelf, still in their original shrink-wrap.

Has this ever happened to you?  You invested in a course, book, whatever, with the best of intentions, but then allowed life to get in the way of taking action to absorb the knowledge contained within it?

If I was a betting man, I would guess you’re probably nodding your head right now.

It reminds me of how I “met” Dan Kennedy.  Several years ago, I bought Dan’s “Ultimate Sales Letter” book.  Rather than reading it right away, I put it on my bookshelf.  There is sat… for years, until for whatever reason, I finally pulled it off my shelf, read it and used the strategies he outlined.

The rest is history.  In the few short years since reading Dan’s book, my life and business have been completely transformed (with the keyword being “completely”).  As a matter of fact, it was just four weeks ago when Dan flew by private jet to spend a few hours with me and more than 300 local entrepreneurs here in the Philadelphia area.  He did this to acknowledge the success of my local GKIC Chapter.

This all happened because I finally took action and read that first book.

But, I digress.  Back to what happened today.

I promised myself this morning would be different and I pulled the training product off the shelf, unwrapped it, put the first CD into my computer and sat back with pen in hand.

90 minutes later, I had the blueprint to generate at least a quarter million dollars in NEW revenues during the rest of 2009.  The funny thing is that I had the genesis of the idea floating around my cranium for the last several months, but it wasn’t until I heard the words of the guru that the idea and how to implement it finally CLICKED (the spontaneous “Hallelujah” almost woke my daughters up!).

And this all happened before 7:00 AM!

I’ve now made a new promise with myself to complete the entire course by this Sunday and more importantly begin implementing immediately.  I will update my progress this blog.

My point with all of this is we all have untapped resources and opportunities literally staring at us each and every day.  Whether it’s an info-product, book, CD course or relationship, chances are you have untapped sources of prosperity all around you.

Do you see them?  And more importantly what are you going to do about them?

Promise yourself to seek out and take advantage of an untapped source of opportunity that’s staring at you this very moment.
